I agree with Adelaide.

The Civil War was one of my favorite subjects in school and I still find amusement studying it in my later years =)

Reading letters from that period is great. As part of my research for my second novel, I read letters between a Confederate soldier and his wife. In a letter to her husband, the lady complained about his failure to get leave by writing,”Maybe you’re not that smart.” I nearly fell out of my chair. You get a sense of people’s humanity at that time by reading the letters.

I was always fascinated about these old pieces of history. It’s a shame that about 90% of them were lost during time.

The civil war is one of my favorite subjects, and is an important part or american history.
