Ghosts of Blue and Gray


For Civil War buffs, there is never any shortage of material to sift through. Army of the Potomac: Birth of Command by Russel H. Beatie, is highly acclaimed by those who study this period. Published in 2002, this copy appears to never have been used. What a find! It's $20 on Amazon1.

To give the 'other side' equal time, here is a biography of P.G.T. Beauregard, referred to as the 'most colorful' of the South's generals. Napoleon in Gray is a good read, and is available for $22 at Amazon1.

And finally, to give yet another post-mortem of the War, this book, A Consuming Fire: The Fall of the Confederacy in the Mind of the White Christian South, purports to help us learn something new. There's a little highlighting on 2 pages, but otherwise this is a good copy. $10 on Amazon1.
