Though this was a required book to read for my American History course, I found it fascinating and enlightening. Seeing what men wrote to their families and associates while embroiled in the devastation of the Civil War of 1861 to 1865 was very edifying. Though there weren't many letters written, this is a valuable look at why our men are willing to suffer, bleed and die for our nation. This war, more than perhaps any other in our history, was fought for our nation's identity.
