I know all you New Englanders are famed for your Revolutionary War exploits when you kicked the brave Redcoats and good King George out of the 13 States. But I wondered if anyone out there shared my enthusiasm and interest in the Civil War? I got interested a few years back - can't remember how anymore - and have been an enthusiastic student of the War ever since. Because I'm in England most of that has to be done through reading, website and watching films etc (and fortunately there is a great canon out there from Catton to Shaara to Foote etc). But because I have family in the Maryland/Virginia area I've also been able to get to a few sites, starting with Gettysburg and Antietam a couple of years ago, as well as a tiny one called Monocacy where the Confederates made a last desperate throw of the dice with an attack on Washington. Can anyone point me in the direction of interesting books, novels and Civil War films? Anyone have particularly interesting stories to tell?
