Writing as Thomas Martin Sobottke (Saturday) you go on a journey from the outbreak of the war until its end, extending right through until this very day. Sobottke uses the very words of historic figures so the reader can test those words, ideas, and judge their importance and efficacy. Yet the author provides a grand historical narrative that allows us to see how the American Civil War or War Between the States should be remembered by this generation and those to come. Creative, always interesting, intellectually challenging, and argumentatively thought provoking. It’s not too late to enjoy the Holiday Season as we move from marking the 150th Anniversary of events in 1863 and move on in the New Year to those of 1864.
