I am reading this now and would like to see a review or maybe some discussion on this forum. There are several reviews available on various websites. I am enjoying Ted Widmer's research and writing style. I am particularly interested because he stopped for lunch in Alliance, Ohio on the trip described in the book and passed only two or three blocks away from where the 19th Ohio would form months later to eventually join the Army of the Ohio.
Reading his description of Washington seems to have many parallels to events today.
