Maureen Taylor, the author, has many obvious talents; however, telling a great story isn't one of those. This book left me underwhelmed mostly because I had such great expectations. The book really is just a series of photographs from the mid 1800's of people who had some connection to the Revolution, or the War of Rebellion - as you like. As a historical record - to record the evidence she has collected - the book is indispensable, but as a sit down and read book - this one is not your friend. I love many of the stories captured here and if you have any interest in 18th or19th century America there is good stuff in here, but you wouldn't want to pull this book up to the fireside for a long winter's night.
