This Civil War book has one deficit. A lack of maps. I also did not see reference to a useful book of maps of Civil War battlefields.

The text ably tells of success of the best army of the Civil War. Quotes come frequently from soldiers themselves, next their commanding officers.

In the middle of this military history is a quote describing the Blair family of Missouri engaging in political feuds: They don’t do in for a fight; they go in for a funeral.
