About the book

Bull Run is an award winning historical civil-war novel by Paul Fleischman based on the monologues of sixteen fictional characters, and one real character (Union Commander General Irvin McDowell is an actual historical figure). Black, white, female, and male characters from the North and the South are represented. Each describes their personal experiences in the First Battle of Bull Run of the American Civil war. Many issues are covered including race, gender, economics and social issues. Due to the structure of the book readers are able to experience the battle from multiple perspectives. Bull Run won the 2012 Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction and was named a Best Book by the School Library Journal.

“A Civil War drama told in sixteen voices, this is a heartbreaking and remarkably vivid portrait of a war that remains our nation’s bloodiest conflict…. Fleischman’s artistry is nothing short of astounding.” – Publishers Weekly

“Outstanding… unforgettable as historical fiction… an important book for every library.” – School Library Journal
