5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for Civil War buffs 30 Jun. 2013
By Tak Keung Hui - Published on
Verified Purchase
With the Battle of Gettysburg and the culmination of the Battle of Vicksburg in July, it's a must-have for Civil War buffs. To read the articles in June about Lee's invasion of the North in the equivalent of real time 150 years ago is fascinating.
