Dear America: Cannons at Dawn: The Second Diary of Abigail Jane Stewart, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, 1779
by Sherry Garland

Abigail Jane Stewart returns in this brand-new sequel to The Winter of the Red Snow. The Revolutionary War toils on, but the Stewart family can no longer avoid getting involved. Abby's father joins the Continental Army, while Abby, her mother, and her siblings become camp followers. They face daily hardships alongside the troops and continue to spend time helping the Washingtons. Filled with romance and adventure, Abby's frontline view of the war captures the heartache and bravery of the soldiers, as well as the steep cost of freedom.

This book is part of the Dear America series---a series of fictional journal accounts by girls living in different times in American history.  There is also a related series of fictional diaries written by boy characters---the My Name is America series. Both series are written in the form of historical fiction diaries and are fantastic to use when teaching American history or even diary/journal writing.
