I read Across Five Aprils.
Loved Uncle Tom's Cabin
Read and LOVE Gone with the Wind (but much more drama than history)
Heard Red Badge of Courage was tough.
Want to read Rifles for Watie
I think I'm going to have to go with Killer Angels! :-)
I guess I'm looking for one that's not all about slavery . . . more about the other issues of the ward.
P.S. My new favorite book . . . a MUST read is A Candle in the Darkness (I think I mentioned that earlier).
