American Civil War: Books

In today's Wall Street Journal, James McPherson lists his picks for the five best books on the American Civil War. Apparently he has a new book out: Tried by War: Lincoln as Commander in Chief.

Here's his list:

  1. This Republic of Suffering, Drew Gilpin Faust
  2. Southern Lady, Yankee Spy, Elizabeth R. Varon
  3. Civil Wars, George C. Rable
  4. The Imagined Civil War, Alice Fahs
  5. Team of Rivals, Doris Kearns Goodwin

Any of these would be great for Marny's American Civil War Challenge. For the rules, see her blog (here).
