PBS will be showing a new documentary called "Death and the Civil War" by Ric Burns (Ken Burns' brother). I was asked to preview the documentary and you can see what I thought about it at:
The post also contains a link to the PBS so you can view when your local station will show it.

Nice review. I was wondering if Drew Gilpin Faust had anything to do with it. Since she seems to be in it a good bit I will refrain from watching it. I tried to read her book but her theory on the "good death" became ridiculous and her bias against the South was obvious. I returned the book after a few chapters. Your book sounds interesting though. It is unfortunate that Clara Barton was the only one mentioned in the documentary. Where can you get your book? Is it available at Amazon?
