Easily an all-time favorite book of mine. Horwitz spends time with Civil War reenactors on the Southern side - a great look at reenactment culture and even some of the Southern "the South will rise again" types with a really keen eye for what makes them really fascinating.

I can't say enough good things about this book, to be honest. Tickles that social psychology nerve just as well as the historian side, and gives some attention to a often-misunderstood and maligned group of people with an offbeat interest.
