    Some off the top of my head --

    Southeast --

    The Watsons go to Birmingham, 1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis -- might be a bit hard with some tough issues for fourth graders, but a good book

    Graveyard Girl by Ann Myers -- Memphis during the 1878 yellow fever epidemic

    Weaver's Daughter by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley -- Tennessee territory -- Appalachian MTN region just after the Revolutionary War

    Mary on Horseback by Rosemary Wells -- three short stories about Mary Breckinridge set in the Appalachian mtns of Kentucky and the begining of the nursing service there just after WWI

    Song of the Trees by Mildred Taylor -- Mississippi during the great depression and racial tensions -- very short novella but great book

    The Gold Cadillac by Mildred Taylor -- travels from the midwest to Mississippi during the Great Depression and racial tensions in the south

    Shades of Gray by Carolyn Reeder -- just after the Civil War in Virginia

    Midwest

    Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis -- Michigan during the great depression -- might be a bit old for fourth grade

    Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink


    Northeast

    The Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare -- Maine colonial era

    The Boston Years series of books based on the life of Caroline -- Laura Ingalls mother -- might make a neat connection if you are using Laura Ingalls Wilder for the Midwest
