American Civil War Reading

I’m working on a library of American Civil War readings.

Here’s my list so far:

    • Shelby Foote 
    • Stephen Oates
    • James McPherson
    • Benjamin Thomas for a good Lincoln study, His book on Lincoln is still a classic more than half a century after he wrote it. 
    • Bill Safire’s fictional account on Lincoln, which focuses on the beginning of the war. 
    • Doris Kearns Goodwin’s “Team of Rivals”.
    • Garry Wills’ book on the Gettysburg Address is incredibly well put together.
    • Holzer has a good book on Lincoln’s speeches.
    • Faust’s “This Republic of Suffering” 
    • Shenk’s “Lincoln’s Melancholy” offers insights as to Lincoln’s personality.
