I like Will Smith, but that's a scary thought! :)

I 'll admit, after I got interested in the CW, the first book I read was Shaara's book, since our 9th grade honors kids have to read it and it was handy. That only got me more interested, though, and once I started on the more "hardcore" CW books--specific battles, specific generals, specific units--I never looked back. (Although I try to point out the inconsistencies in "The Killer Angels" to my social studies colleagues whenever I can, just annoy them!) But I can see how anything history-oriented, however general and generic, is a good jumping-off point, because it happened to me!
