Many books have been written about the major battles, personalities, and caused of the Civil War. This book fills the gap of knowledge regarding short anecdotal stories of life at home and on the front during the war. Many of these short vignettes could have been the sources of Ambrose Bierce's writings. I have owned this book for nearly 50 years and it has been largely responsible for my continuing interest in Civil War history.
