I have just finished re-reading Bruce Catton's trilogy "Mr. Lincoln's Army", "Glory Road" and "A Stillness at Appomattox" and was far more moved than when I read it the first time half a century ago. It is powerful and straight forward at the same time. If you haven't read them, you should if you have an interest in the war or the shaping of America. If you have read them, they are definitely worth a re-read. Now, my question, does anyone know of an equally good book (or series of books) on the Confederate Army?
