When I was 12 my parents gave me the American Heritage book on the Civil War by Bruce Catton.  I fell in love with it and have been a Civil War buff ever since.  I used to spend hours studying those marvelous maps.  Great narrative and lots of impression creating pictures.

I have been the President of a local Civil War Round Table for the past 10 years.  One night we had Craig Symonds as our speaker.  At dinner his wife asked me how I started my interest in the Civil War.  When I told her, Craig immediately spoke up saying that was his experience as well.  Many others I have met have told me the same thing.

Anyone else have a similar start?
