great mix of historical and personal
Causey does a wonderful job of intertwining the historical with the personal lives of the main characters. It is a very realistic portrayal of the daily lives and tribulations of both Union and Confederate people.
He introduced me to several battles I wasn't really familiar with, not unusual since there were so many overall.
This is a really engrossing and entertaining and educational piece of work. If you enjoy reading about the real Civil War this one is for you
