glad I got, very interesting

diaries, letters, and journals documenting the last eighteen months of the Confederacy. It also makes note of conditions in the Union POW camps, and how deplorable the conditions were there too. quite informative.

Toalson provides a remarkable selection of first hand experiences. No drippy sentiments, no notions of glory, no revisionist whitewash here, just harsh realities soberly presented.

I really enjoyed this book. The author did an excellent job of pasting together bits and pieces of letters, correspondence, into a mostly seamless story.

It was interesting to get the perspective of families who had sons/brothers/husbands in the war and the actual feelings of the soldiers fighting battles. You have to enjoy just the basics of history to plow through the many letters. Since there were so many letters of many families, you were reading a consensus of people's attitudes and feelings of how they were feeling. It's not like reading a book about a specific family and their trials during the war. It was nice just to read about day to day life and not just the "glorified" battles that are in the history books. The men who fought the Civil War really suffered and it's important for people not to forget what they had to endure.

This book is one of the most interesting first hand accounts of the war that I have read. I found the content very captivating and heartfelt. It was one of those books you hope never ends.

Spectacular work; the most revealing and human depiction of the Civil War I've ever read. The realities of the day explode accross the pages straight from from the folks who lived them. This is the honest stuff; edited to a flow that keeps the reader engaged throughtout.
This is a poignant book filled with letters from the heart during a troublesome time in our country's history. Very readable and beautifully edited.
