I'm with you on The Killer Angels, Paula. That's what got me hooked on the Civil War.
And I completely agree that historical fiction can really serve as that impetus to get someone interested in learning more. That's what it's all about, and is probably why Shades of Gray is so well received by the Civil War community. It shows the emotions and passions of both sides, and educates without being preachy or dry.
