    Love you Dr. Weitz

    This book shows off Dr. Weitz' intelligence and seemingly boudless knowledge of Civil War history! I have taken several college classes from this man (although I am not familiar with the co-author) and am always amazed my his knowledge. He is always able to tell things in a way that puts it into the proper historical context and makes it interesting for the rest of us. This book is no exception.
