I read this book up at Grandmother's cottage in Michigan when I was a kid. Someone, a guest perhaps, had probably brought it up to read over their vacation. In any case, like many of the books I read in childhood, this one was just laying around and I, being daily reminded of the centennial of the War Between the States, thought it would be interesting. What it was, however, was mortifying--quite the antidote to all the films and television shows glorifying the war.
