Review: The Civil War (American Heritage)

User Review  - Roger - Goodreads

A good place to start if you don't know diddly about the Civil War except key words such as 1860s, Lincoln, slavery, and the names of a few prominent battles. Mercifully easy to read and brief, clocking in at a little under 300 pages. Read full review
