Jefferson thought that many English laws and taxes were unfair, so he studied hard to become a lawyer and help make better laws. Soon he and others came to believe that the colonies should become a new country, and Jefferson was chosen to write the Declaration of Independence. As the third president of the United States, he focused on exploring the country and making it grow. His fairness and love of learning made him one of the most beloved presidents of all time.

A riveting account of the most fascinating battle of the Civil War, for all readers, from young to old. MACKINLAY KANTOR Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Andersonville The Civil War was in its third year. When troops entered Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the South seemed to be winning. But Gettysburg was a turning point. From July 1 to July 3, 1863, the Confederacy and the Union engaged in a bitter, bloody fight. The author takes the reader through the events of that fateful confrontation and shows us how "through strategy, determination, and sheer blind luck, the Union won the battle." Inspired by the valor of the many thousands of soldiers who died there, President Lincoln visited Gettysburg to give a brief but moving tribute. His Gettysburg Address is one of the most famous speeches in American history.
