Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wooster (history, Texas A&M Univ.; Miles and the Twilight of the Frontier Army, LJ 5/15/93) lists the 100 people whom he regards as being the most influential during the Civil War era and gives three- or four-page biographies of each. Ranging from Abraham Lincoln to Harriet Beecher Stowe and Napoleon III, the subjects are not exclusively military or political figures but were involved in all aspects of society. Compiling a list of the 100 most significant individuals involved in anything is not without risk; surely someone will argue, "Hey! You didn't include..." or "What do you mean ranking Andrew Johnson as number six?" Still, Wooster has put together a very useful and readable biographical source. Recommended for the reference collection of any public library.Joseph Toschik, Half Moon Bay P.L., CA
