really liked it
Read from August 30 to September 06, 2010

I am a relatively new resident of Georgia and I am fascinated by stories of the Civil War. It is interesting to note there is a wide disparity in the Civil War history I learned in Pittsbugh and the stories of the Civil War in the South. So I am on a journey to learn both versions and try to understand the truth of what happened. "Bonfire" is well written. Sometimes I got bogged down by all the battles but appreciated having a Northern and Southern point of view. I knew Sherman marched through Atlanta on his march to the sea but I had no idea that Atlanta was under siege for 44 days. There are personal anecdotes that make the story very interesting.
