Lessons of War: The Civil War in Childrens Magazines is a collection of such items, gathered from popular childrens magazines that were published during this era. The selections in Lessons of War demonstrate the depth of childrens involve-ment in the war, from raising funds for soldiers to incorporating the war into their play activities and eagerly accepting northern political attitudes. The eras leading childrens magazines, such as The Little Pilgrim, The Little Corporal, and Student and Schoolmate, used first-person accounts to let the children of the Civil War tell their own stories.

Martens commentary illuminates the vision of the Union war effort presented to children as the nation waged war against itself. Sure to enlighten both scholars and students, Lessons of War is a valuable addition to courses on the Civil War and American social and cultural history.
