I sometimes think my Civil War "habit" keeps Barnes and Noble and Borders in business! I can totally relate to izzy, Capt. Crow and Bighouse about not being able to be within eyesight of a bookstore and not go see what's new in the CW section!

I just finished Stephen Sears' Gettysburg since I'm heading there next week. Some of the others on my "to read list" are Reading the Man: A Portrait of Robert E. Lee Through His Private Letters by Elizabeth Pryor, The Colors of Courage by Margaret Creighton, Chancellorsville by Stephen Sears and Historic Photos of Gettysburg by John S. Salmon, which isn't a read except if you count the captions but I love looking at old photos of battlefields I've been to, like Frassinito's "Then/Now" works. I also just got History of the 153rd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, which is pretty specific unless you're interested in the 153rd PVI.

American Brutus sounds familiar--what's it about, anyone who's read it?
