There is almost always a specific reason why I choose to read a particular book, especially those relating to the United States Civil War. A common side-effect of being particular is the tendency to learn a little more about something I didn’t know about or previously consider. Reading about the Civil War, especially from first-hand accounts and reports brings with it an air of humanity. Any time you can put a name with a face and then place that face at a given location at a specific time. the history becomes real and alive.
