Fleischman has written primarily historical fiction. None of his other fiction experiments with narrative to the extent Bull Run does. Like Bull Run, The Borning Room uses first person narration, but it reveals only at the end that it was primarily a flashback. It tells about life in the late nineteenth century in Ohio. Path of the Pale Horse tells of an epidemic in Philadelphia in 1793. Saturnalia tells of events in Boston in the late seventeenth century.

These books reflect Fleischman's deep interest in American history, and if read in order of publication show how confident he has become as a stylist, willing to take chances and trusting of the intelligence of his audience.
