Currently reading Battle Cry of Freedom by McPherson.  I'm 180 pgs in on the 596 pg book.  Pretty interesting read.  He goes indepth into the pre-war politics and issues leading to the disunion.  Compares the industrial capacity, telegraph, and resources of the two sections.  Has anybody else read it?  One reviewer called it slanted north.  I readily admit that I have a biased northern view but I haven't noticed anything insulting to southerners in the book.  I had relatives on the southern side too, so I do respect southern feelings.  Anyway just curious if anyone else read it and what they thought of it.
