Focus on the Civil War: Book Notes

One of the best books I've read this year is Drew Gilpin Faust's This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War (Knopf, $27.95). It's a fascinating depiction of how that war changed everyday Americans and their daily lives. You can read my review of it on Ancestry's 24/7 Family History Blog.
