Overview

This fascinating book tells the story of the Civil War as seen from the Union side. Through his brilliant and stirring narrative, Bruce Catton conveys the human aspect of history and translates meticulously researched historical fact into an absorbing chronicle of the war. This Hallowed Ground deals with the entire scope of the Civil War - from the months of unrest and hysteria that led to Fort Sumter to the days of tragedy and hope that followed Appomattox. Along with the author, readers will relive the shock and shell and glory of the war. The true greatness of this book, however, lies in Catton's deeply moving analysis of the issues, and his search for the true meaning of the conflict.

Gracefull, descriptive writting. Excellent use of regimental histories, soldiers diaries, correspondence, etc. was Catton's ground-breaking contribution to Civil War literature. This, and Catton's other books, served as the introduction to the subject for many (now senior) Civil War buffs such as I. Strongly recommend this classic.
