The Unknown Civil War: Odd, Peculiar, and Unusual Stories of the War Between the States
In the 135 years that have passed since the Civil War, almost every significant event has been discussed, detailed, or described in one way or another. Indeed, so much has been written that very little of what happened remains unknown.
However, many odd, peculiar, and unusual stories attached themselves to the people and events of the war. The Unknown Civil War is a collection of such stories, many of them about fascinating, little-known aspects of larger stories that have been ignored in the rush to stake out new scholarly insights about the war. The result is a genuine human-interest book about the war that does not ignore the political and military aspects but highlights a wealth of interesting facts that make for entertaining reading:
