Very interesting to say the least, I've always been fascinated by the Civil War, as I've got several books in relation to the war. Abraham Lincoln, The Blue and Grey, The Killing of Lincoln, and several more. I do have a Civil War Confederate Officers Sword and scabbard, which the scabbard isn't original but I do believe the sword is.

I'm reading it now. Fascinating! I've got the Killing of Lincoln too, but haven't read it yet.

Great book!

I just finished reading this wonderful, well written, and superbly researched book. I enjoy reading historical works, and the ugliness of the civil war is one of my favorite topics. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good historical read, particularly in regard to the civil war, which is one of the most shameful times of our history.

Thank you for bringing this book to my attention!

I don't think it is limited to either side.

I got about 1/2 way through the book and had to give a rest. I may someday finish the book but for now it was too much. I've recently gotten into Ancestry.com and have identified over 1,600 family members now. I can't believe how many relatives I had that either died in the war or because of it. My ancestors came mostly from the Carolina's, Alabama and Tennessee. So it was hitting a little too close to home.

Our Civil War is still considered my many historians to be the most awful war in history.
