1861 The Civil War Awakening (2011) by Adam Goodheart BOOK REVIEW

leave a comment »

This book gives some new and refreshing information related to President Lincoln.   A man named Elmer Ellsworth is dealt with in some detail.   I do not remember reading about him in the past.   James Garfield and Robert Anderson (Fort Sumter) are also dealt with in some detail.   Chapter Six dealing with,in part,  John C. Fremont and his wife was not appreciated by me.

If you enjoy reading about aspects of the CIVIL WAR you will probably enjoy reading this book.

MY RATING:  9 out of 10
