I'd even appreciate weird "Twilight Zone" things as having Traveler, Lee's horse, talk about the war from a horse's point of view. One of Custer's horses or J.E.B. Stuart's horses could tell some fascinating stories.


I believe there's one of those out there, although it may not be in print any more.  It was by Richard Adams, the same guy who wrote the book about the rabbits ("Watership Down"?).  Must have been 20+ years ago that I read it, but I recall it being very thoughtful and entertaining.  Sorry, can't for the life of me remember the title.
