This book is a quick read. The writing is clear, concise and wonderful. The stories of the families are intense and profound.
It is a wonderful read, very sad at times and well worth the time.
I loved this book and have already sent this along to my sister for her enjoyment.
With particular focus on the American "way of death" in the 19th Century, and especially the Civil War, Professor Faust examines in fascinating detail how much of what we do and feel about death evolved.
It may be hard to put down.
This was an extremely detailed, well-written book, depicting the extensive losses, the country's first experience with a tragedy of such magnitude, and the array of responses that shaped the continued journey of the nation.
