With the coming of the Civil War, and the staggering casualties it ushered in, death entered the experience of the American people as it never had before -- permanently altering the character of the republic and the psyche of the American people. Contending with death on an unprecedented scale posed challenges for which there were no ready answers when the war began. Americans worked to improvise new solutions, new institutions, and new ways of coping with death on an unimaginable scale.

    This is a good read for Civil War buffs; a different perspective, if maybe a bit too unemotional in places. It still gives a pretty good feel for what it had to be like to be there.

    A book which demonstrates that bravery, honor, and gallantry existed in abundance on both sides during the civil war. A great pleasure to read. Invaluable insight into the character of many command and staff officers in the Army of the Potomac.
