"What a great book. Kudos to you. The choice of letters gives the
reader a real sense of the pathos and suffering felt on both sides."
- Al Cormier, Town Historian, Salem, New York
"It is the most enjoyable book I've ever read about the Civil War. I have
read it over and over again, more than any other Civil War book."
- Park visitor at the Resaca Battlefield Historic Site
