This was a great book to read after The Kent Family Chronicles #5 - The Titans. (It was an accident, but a good one) In the Titans, I believe Lincoln had just been elected and the war had just gotten off to a good start. This book isn't part of the Kent Family Chronicles, but it is about Sherman's ravaging the country, burning Atlanta Georgia, and marching on to take over Savannah. This all happened right at Christmas time, so someone suggested that Sherman offer Savannah to President Lincoln as a Christmas present. The writing is excellent and gives a good feel for the horrors of the war. It was a great addition to the Kent Family Chronicles between books 5 and 6.
