Military Appreciation Month Reads

“The Legacy of the Civil War” – Pulitzer Prize writer, Robert Warren, explores the manifold ways in which the Civil War changed the United States Forever.

“Civil War Hospital Sketches” – Before her wider fame as the author of Little Women, Louisa May Alcott achieved recognition for her accounts of her work as a volunteer nurse during the Civil War.

“Collateral Language” – Each of the fourteen essays in Collateral Language offers an informed perspective on a particular word or phrase that serves as a building block in the edifice of post-World Trade Center rhetoric.

“History 31st Regiment Illinois Volunteers” – The Story of John A. Logan’s famed Civil War regiment, told by its Veterans, follows its troops through the battles of Belmont, Fort Donelson, Vicksburg, Kenesaw Mountain, and Atlanta through the March to Sea and into the Carolina, where Southern Illinois farm boys, half a continent away from home, joined in forcing the surrender of the last major Confederate army.

“Civil Blood” – Signed copy of Civil Blood. Narcissus Powers, a white widow turned Confederate nurse, and Judah Daniel, a free black herbalist, joining forces against a small pox outbreak, encounter a frightening possibility: the victims are being infected by tainted money flowing through Richmond’s network of speculators and profiteers.
