Voices of the Civil War: By Richard Wheeler
The book outlines the main events that occur during the Civil War. The first major point in which the book states if the first and foremost battle at Fort Stumner. The war has just started and neither of the two armies really know what to do. The Confederates have the advantage in Generals; some of them being the best ones that the country has ever had, but lacking in industry. The Union is just the other way around. The Civil war occured from 1861 to 1865. This book doesn't really have a main character. It tells the story of the civil war from the writer's (Richard Wheeler) point of view. Different qoutes from the soldiers and other people that were affected by the war are thrown into place. General Oliver Howard said "Providentally for us, it was the last battle that he waged against the American Union, Jackson stood head and shoulders above his soliders and General Lee could not replace him." This book was very good but a little on the harder side. I would recomend this book who are adults and wanting to catch up on a bit of history.
