Unfortunately, the books I would like others to read are unrelated to the war. *

I have a recurring daydream in which my long-suffering friends turn to me and say 'K, where should I start on the American Civil War' - I would probably mention Wiley, Billings, and Watkins. I would, however, also give them my copy of Horowitz's 'Confederates in the Attic'. As it relates the war to the contemporary USA, especially the South, it should ease them into thinking about the various issues surrounding the period.

* For the record, the top two are Flaubert's 'Sentimental Education' and Johnson's 'The History of Rasselas'.
