I decided this year to discontinue my “Best of…” lists. Simply put, I read a lot of really good Civil War history and I am finding it difficult to single out specific books. Here are some late arrivals to my library in 2014.
Don H. Doyle, The Cause of All Nations: An International History of the American Civil War, (Basic, 2014).
Brian Matthew Jordan, Marching Home: Union Veterans and Their Unending Civil War, (Liveright, 2015).
Brian McGinty, Lincoln’s Greatest Case: The River, the Bridge, and the Making of America, (Liveright, 2015).
Barton Myers, Rebels against the Confederacy: North Carolina’s Unionists, (Cambridge University Press, 2014).
