I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever finish this book. I would only recommend this one if you enjoy academic writing. Honestly, I was only able to read a few pages at a time before falling asleep.

As a native Savannahian, I was attracted to the idea of learning a little more history about my hometown. Yes, the book is filled with civil war history, and some of the urban legends I grew up with were debunked, but it was not an easy read.

If you plan to read this on a Kindle (or even in paper format), I suggest writing down the names of characters and organizations as they are introduced. I would have found the book more enjoyable (and less confusing) had I tracked that information.
