New book, 106 pages. Civil War - always the most heartrending experience for any nation. America's was no different, families split asunder, brother fighting brother - but always the overriding sincerity of the cause. This book contains mini biographies of seventy nine of the most reveared leaders and heroes whose fame has become part of American legend. The entries are in alphabetical order and range from Confederates such as Pierre Beauregard, the hero of Fort Sumter, to the legendary Sonewall Jackson - and from 'Johny Shiloh', the little drummer boy, to General Ulysses Grant, 'the Butcher' of the Unionist forces.
