Fun collection to read. Grant and Ambrose Pierce, and even some fiction thrown in for a review of how war affects our imagination. A well done collection, that provides a surprisingly expansive scope of coverage of the Civil War. Probably Fun collection to read.

Probably nothing overly interesting for intense Civil War buffs, but the manner and approach Ayers took in collecting and presenting the works will make the subject more interested to general history interested people, and possibly even those who have little interest in history, but are just curious about the American Civil War.

Excellent anthology of civil war selections including speeches, journals, and memoirs. I read this in conjunction with a series of civil war discussions sponsored by libraries around the country. The most riveting selection for me was an account of the Battle of Shiloh, written by Ambrose Bierce who commanded a unit there. View 1 comment. Oct 21, Anna rated it liked it.
