Read in January, 1985

This is, without a doubt, the most comprehensive full history of the War of Southern Insurrection (LOL). Seriously, Foote does a marvelous job of putting down, in very readable form, the entire social, political, cultural, and military aspects surrounding this period in American History. I have read this trilogy a number of times and each time, I marvel at the way he creates such full pictures of life and times during that era. A GREAT read, but it IS a long series and requires some dedication to the subject matter is get through.
