Review: Civil War Curiosities: Strange Stories, Oddities, Events, and Coincidences

User Review  - Museborn - Goodreads

Not a bad little book. Some interesting stories; a serious student of the American Civil War would find some of the factual errors in the book to be disconcerting. Fortunately there are not many of these, and overall the book is well-written enough to keep the reader's interest. Read full review
