Our Fight, Our Time: a Graphic Novel of the Civil War

by Stan Mack and Susan Champlin

Sam was born in slavery, Annabelle was born in wealth.

They live on the same plantation, but in very different worlds. Now the Civil War is upending life as they’ve known it: Each of their fathers is pulled into the conflict, and armies from North and South have their eyes on Twin Oaks. As Sam faces life-threatening danger, he makes courageous choices. Annabelle casts off the rules she grew up with and steps in to take charge. The characters are fictional, but the realities of war blaze to life in this story of heroism, adventure, and unexpected friendship. The real struggles of the War are shown, and some of its major figures, like Clara Barton and Abraham Lincoln, put in appearances.

The book includes an afterword detailing the real people and historical events involved.

The Pickpocket, the Spy, and the Lobsterbacks: a Graphic Novel of the American Revolution

by Stan Mack and Susan Champlin

A graphic novel that throws two teens into the excitement and tumult of the American Revolution, delivering the true story of the nation’s founding in an approachable and thrilling manner.

When Penny, the hard-working daughter of a tavernkeeper, meets Nick, an orphaned stableboy who lives by his wits (and a few “borrowed” wallets), opposites do not attract. But these unlikely partners don’t know that their lives are on the brink of change—of revolution—as England and the American colonies march toward war. While Nick and Penny are fictional, their adventures put them (and us!) in the thick of the action with the real-life heroes (including Paul Revere and George Washington) and battles (such as the Battle of Bunker Hill) that shaped a brand-new country.

This book ends with a guide to the real people and events that drive this fictional story.
