As the reader will find,Goodheart has a wonderful way of weaving a story so as too keep the reader wondering or evern finding surprises about the time just prior to the war and it's beginning. "1861 The Ciil War Awakening will provide its reader with all kinds of facts and information not found in many other places.
Adam Goodheart has certainly done his research and studying when he collected and organized this book. I would highly recommend this book for the history buff, and anyother including a student to become well rounded in the true information of the American Civil War.
The characters depicted in this book come to life as you read. Bravo to Adam Goodheart for such a wonderful read.
