Folks, what do you think the most important scholarly non-fiction, non-autobiographical books on the ACW are? Not necessarily your favorite books, but the most influential.  I made a list of 10 off the top of my head in no particular order... any thoughts?

1) Battle Cry of Freedom- James McPherson

2) The Life of Johnny Reb/Billy Yank- Bell I. Wiley

3) Embattled Courage- Gerald Linderman

4) Mothers of Invention- Drew Faust

5) Why the South Lost the Civil War- Beringer, Hattaway, Jones, Still

6) How the North Won- Hattaway, Jones

7) The Sable Arm- Dudley Cornish

8) Battle Tactics of the Civil War- Paddy Griffith

9) What they Fought For- James McPherson

10) On the Threshold of Freedom- Thomas Mohr
