I'm glad to see so much feedback here, including from Mr. Hessler himself. I became interested in the book thanks to watching Mr. Hessler's Sickles tours on Gettysburg Daily. I, like Fan, love to read about the "characters" in the war! It's always been my feeling that the South had more of them than the North, so hearing about what sounds like a detailed and highly readable book on Sickles is a true find.

I haven't bought the book, yet, but I was actually saving the buying for next week, when I travel to Gettysburg for a few days of tramping around the battlefield on foot. Now, I'm definitely looking forward to the trip and the book--that is, if I don't get lost trying to find Neill Avenue, the "lost" avenue, this time around!

Thanks for the impromptu reviews, everyone!
