Overview

The fifth part of a century almost has sped with the flight of time since the outbreak of the Slaveholder's Rebellion against the United States. The young men of to-day were then babes in their cradles, or, if more than that, too young to be appalled by the terror of the times. Those now graduating from our schools of learning to be teachers of youth and leaders of public thought, if they are ever prepared to teach the history of the war for the Union so as to render adequate honor to its martyrs and heroes, and at the same time impress the obvious moral to be drawn from it, must derive their knowledge from authors who can each one say of the thrilling story he is spared to tell: "All of which I saw, and part of which I was."

    more from this reviewer

    So many reasons to read this book...

    This book was well written, informative, and heart-breaking. A very realistic and gritty look into was was the most notorious prison of the civil war. There are many reasons to read this book: for research, for civil war history, for a glimpse into what an individual can endure to survive, and last but not least, as a reminder of mankind's inhumanity to mankind. There is much that can be learned from this book.

    Andersonville

    The greatest book of civil war prisons I have ever read. The author does an outstanding job in depicting the horrors of the way life was as a prisoner of war.

    A Must-Read For History Buffs

    This book gives a different view of the civil war than books that are written by non-era authors. I found it a well written and fascinating first-hand account of the horrors of war in the 19th century. I've read many books about the civil war but no one has done as thorough a job of describing the conditions that our troops endured and how they felt about each other during those terrible days.

    Informative and interesting, but drags a little

    Andersonville is an interesting and informative book that is worth reading if you are a Civil War history buff. I give Andersonville three stars because the books drags and can be verbose at times. While Andersonville was an incredible travesty, the author uses the book as a platform to vent about and criticize his tormentors. While everything he said is justified 10X, it can still be a little draining at times. By the end I found myself saying okay already, wrap it up. If you like Civil War history then it worth reading, otherwise I might pass as it is long and overly written.

    Truly worth the read

    A real eyeopener. Well written view of an under-reported facet of The Civil War.

    Highly Recommended

    This is a great book for learning more about that side of the Civil War that was happening apart from all the fighting--American citizens killing one another. The prison camps like Andersonville were the worst kind of concentration camp where human life had no value to the other side that ran them. MacKinlay Kantor used this book as one of the references for his novel "Andersonville"--another great read if you come across it.
