What are your thoughts on Civil War fiction, meaning fiction that uses the Civil War as plot in some way (like, for example, Gone With the Wind)? I've read the Sharras' trilogy, of course, and Cold Mountain. Right now I'm almost finished with a book I picked up the last time I was Gettysburg, Jacob's Ladder by Donald McCaig, and I hate to see it end. I'm surprised at how good it is. I don't make a habit of reading Civil War fiction ( know too much of the real stuff, so I get too picky to enjoy it), but Jacob's Ladder is a good book.

Anyone else read Civil War fiction?
