However some of the back and forth between the troops home and the Confederate Army was hard to follow at times. I thought overall this book was a pretty good read. The battle description I thought were as informative as possible based on what records and info was available.
I cannot imagine how difficult that was.http://qooru.com/alfabeto-de-cicatrices-poesa-n-122.php

The information in the book matched up exactly to what actually took place in that battle. All in all I would recommend this book as a Civil War read and especially for those interested in the war that occurred in the mountain area of N.
C, Tennessee and northern Georgia as well as which units were involved.

While being one of the largest regiments from North Carolina, the Fifty-Eighth was largely constructed from conscripts. These were men whose decision to serve was forced on them. Sometimes at the point of a bayonet. Despite reluctance and a higher than normal desertion rate, the Fifty-Eighth was an important regiment that played a pivotal role in many of the campaigns in which they participated.

When people describe documentaries using the "Ken Burns approach," its style is understood: The Civil War uses all of these devices to evoke atmosphere and resurrect an event that many knew only from stale history books.

Using the words of old letters, eloquently read by a variety of celebrities, the stories of historians like Shelby Foote and rare, stained photos, Burns allows us not only to relearn and finally understand our history, but also to feel and experience it.
