These ten stories of the Civil War give us the experience of joining a coachload of whores left on a siding during a battle in Virginia . . .marching into an old man's house to tell him it's about to be burned down . . .or seeing a childhood friend shot down at Chickamauga.
The result is history that lives again in our imagination, as the creative vision of these great writers touches our emotions and makes us witness to the human tragedy of this war, fought so bravely by those in blue and gray.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
This long out-of-print anthology of Civil War stories by such authors as F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, and Thomas Wolfe includes a new introduction and the addition of three new stories.

Some of the writers were very good, but others completely missed the boat. The book was not what I expected. Was disappointed.
