I really liked this book a lot, I would have given it 5 of 5 had I read it, listening to it was hard because there were so many characters.
The thing is it was very disturbing. I am not a fool. I grew up a Presbyterian. I know there are no good people. But to hear the horror racism from the Union soldiers. It just ripped me up. It just made me even more angry and puzzled and sickened.
The book also had a wonderful quote about war, "After a time though, the men took to studying Bibles instead of poker hands. It struck me as strange that nearly all the legions of soldiers camped around me considered themselves to be whole, sold Christians, had heard preaching every Sunday of their lives, had memorized piles of scriptures and verses and yet were ready to break the commandment against killing, the moment the order was given."
