it was amazing

This relatively small (in size) book is a veritable powerhouse of information related to Civil War era dance and in particular, the famed "ball". It is packed with succinct and well-written descriptions of dance steps, rules of etiquette, appropriate attire, and even authentic period recipes for refreshments served at Civil War era balls.

This is a comprehensive must-have for the vintage dance enthusiast, you will find everything you need to prepare yourself to attend a vintage ball circa 1860.

I would encourage anyone purchasing the book to also purchase the companion CD (musical performance by the vintage musicians, Spare Parts).
