Sounding Forth the Trumpet for Young Readers tells the dramatic story of our nation's struggle with slavery and human rights in the pre-Civil War years. These were the days of John Quincy Adams and William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Tubman and Harriet Beecher Stowe, Abraham Lincoln and Dred Scott--figures who were used by God to change the course of human history.

This book brings one of the most crucial times in America's past to life, the years of 1837 to 1860. Young readers ages 9 to 12 will learn about the events that led up to the Civil War, including the Mexican War, the Gold Rush, the Nebraska-Kansas Act, and the emergence of Abraham Lincoln. Study questions and answers for each chapter and a glossary of terms are included.
