Thanks for the responses so far! Catton also wrote a great one volume history of the war called, "This Hallowed Ground." Someday when I have children I will read that to them to get them hooked... As to Foote, I did enjoy his novel "Shiloh." Did anyone read the chapter devoted to him in Tony Horwitz's "Confederates in the Attic?" I was somewhat bemused by his portrayal of a grumpy old man who still gets phone calls from admirers. Such is the price of fame though...
