Confederates and Others

Formula for a cloudy day: Go find "Confederates" by Thomas Keneally. Curl up in comfortable spot and start reading. Truly one of the great novels about the American Civil War.

Some others for the Civil War buff:

"Andersonville" by MacKinlay Kantor
"The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara
"The Year of Jubilo" by Howard Bahr
"Cold Mountain" by Charles Frazier
"The Red Badge of Courage" by Stephen Crane
"Soul Catcher" by Michael C. White
"Lincoln" by Gore Vidal
