Product Description

Derek and Michael are travelling with their grandmother to Washington D.C. and on the way stop at Harper's Ferry Civil War Museum to visit. Curiously enough, after trying on Union soldier uniforms, the boys pass through a door and find themselves in 1862 in Antietam just days after the battle. They think that it is all a game, a reenactment, until they meet Abraham Lincoln and witness the horrors of war. When their pocket watch chimes, they have one hour to return to the museum or they will be trapped forever in 1862 . . . will they make it in time?

Publisher's Description

Michael and Derek don't expect the adventure of a lifetime visiting a Civil War museum with their grandmother. But the mysterious museum keeper invites them to play a game, and before they know it, they're walking through a door straight into a very realistic depiction of 1863. They see the destruction at the battlefield of Antietam, and even meet President Lincoln. Soon, they start to wonder if it's really a game, after all-and suddenly they're racing across Confederate-occupied land to return to their own time before it's too late.

Patricia Polacco's time-travel premise is fascinating- who knew that history museums could literally be doorways into the past? She makes history exciting for young readers, drawing them into a pivotal part of our nation's development.
