Anna. Hall's Story
Depicts Drama of
Civil War Period

The Civil War centennial has in-
spired many books, among them
stories for young readers. Superb
among the tales of the war among
the brothers in this land is "Cyrus
Holt and the Civil War," by Anna
Gertrude Hall, published by Vik-
ing Press (625 Madison, N.Y. 22).
An able librarian and already
having gained fame for her bio-
graphy of Fridtjof Nansen, Miss
Hall has written a moving story
about a boy of 9 whose experi-
ences during the entire war period
are delineated here in the spirit
of deep concern over the country's
fate during a tragic period that
divided it over the slavery ques-
tion.
All the events of the war are
carefully recorded as Cyrus, the
young hero, takes into account
everything that transpired. the
events in Washington, Lincoln's
proclamation, the recruits and esp-
ecially the Zouaves—the youth
whose battlecry was "Zou! Zou!"
and who volunteered for action.
While the gaily dresses Zouaves
are heroes in this story, they are
not the only cast of characters in
this tale. Cyrus and his family and
their friends, the marching troops,
the men in the nation's capital,
the President whose tragic end is
recorded here—these are events
that mark the good story about
Cyrus while giving a fine account
of the Civil War period as Cyrus
experienced it.
