    What are you reading? (Civil War related)

    Id like to know what everyone is reading Re: Civil War.

    Im reading Shelby Footes Civil War: A Narrative, again. Also reading Confederate Tide Rising: Robert E. Lee and the Making of Southern Strategy, 1861-1862 by Joseph L. Harsh, which I think will help me with a speculative in-class essay next week.

    I am currently reading through Silent Witness. It's pretty much all of my favourite fields rolled in to one. The last paperback I read, however, was Drew Gilpin Faust's "This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War". It was an excellent read, and at times rather difficult.

    Just finished Killer Angels for the third time and just started Taken at the Flood: Robert E. Lee & Confederate Strategy in the Maryland Campaign of 1862.

    I might reread Stephen Sears' "landscape turned red" again...
    If anyone else can recommend a better book about Antietam (tactical level included) please post.

    Hartwig is expensive, but is apparently a must read in the Maryland campaign. Carman is also highly recommended.

    Would that be D. Scott Hartwig?, and his book, "To Antietam Creek, The Maryland Campaign of September 1862."?

    Working on completing "The Last Cavaliers" By Samuel Carter III, a cool old read for people whom are interested in Civil War Cavalry History. Hopefully I can move onto "The Man Who Saved The Union", a Biography of Ulysses S. Grant by H.W. Brands.
