|Currently reading Battle Cry of Freedom by McPherson. I'm 180 pgs in on the 596 pg book. Pretty interesting read. He goes indepth into the pre-war politics and issues leading to the disunion. Compares the industrial capacity, telegraph, and resources of the two sections. Has anybody else read it? One reviewer called it slanted north. I readily admit that I have a biased northern view but I haven't noticed anything insulting to southerners in the book. I had relatives on the southern side too, so I do respect southern feelings. Anyway just curious if anyone else read it and what they thought of it.
