1861 The Civil War Awakening, by Adam Goodheart

"1861 The Civil War Awakening", by Adam Goodheart, is one of the best fact based pieces of literature I have read concerning the American Civil War.  Right after you open this book you are captured and thrown into the time before the war's beginning, with factual information from a variety of different points, or if you wish, sides.  
  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.
