Curiosities of the Civil War Review

Image
I received this book from booksneeze (booksneeze.com) Webb Garrison’s “Curiosities of the Civil War” is a compendium of unusual facts and events and important figures during the Civil War. Most are obscure and likely not to be found in a typical history textbook.One would find the stories of the ever so tall President Lincoln questing to find other men his height or near to it. Or the stories of the soldiers who managed to continue on in battle despite illness or loss of limbs. Also, the tales of the priests who would accompany troops to the battlefield to administer last rites to the dying on the battlefield. This book was indeed an interesting read, as many of the facts and stories mentioned here are far from common knowledge; thus allowing the reader to catch a small glimpse of Abraham Lincoln’s personality or the crippling illness some soldiers were stricken with, but were still so intent on fighting this war. Or less depressing, the necessity of the Union army to stock coffee beans…

50 Book Challenge

Okay I wrote before that I entered in the 50 book challenge. Ya. I entered into it on goodreads, it's a lot easier or, I hope so. So I thought I would tell you what books that I am going to read. Oh and I could even enter into the off the shelf challenge. Amazing huh? but I won't. Too much to take care of. So now I'll list all the books I plan on reading, and the books I have read so far. Oh and it's a total of 53 books. I have 2 bind-ups in my collection but I wont add them...I kind of lost interest in bind-ups.
