Buy your daughter the book.  It has been reprinted and is available at many bookstores.  You will love it.

Sounds like you have had as much luck in instilling an interest in the Civil War in your children as I have had with mine.  But it is interesting that whenever any of them or their friends were doing a research paper on the Civil War, I was always their primary resource.  Then I would load them down with 10 or 12 books to read and it didn't seem quite so easy.

One day my daughter asked my wife about some historical event.  My wife said: "Ask your father."  My daughter responded: "I don't want to ask Dad.  I don't want to know that much about it."

It's fun for me to read these threads and know that there are a lot of people here who know a lot more about it than I do.  Looking forward to learning.
