Book Review: Curiosities of the Civil War

Hi all! I'm back with another book review. This time, it's for Curiosities of the Civil War by Webb Garrison. In this book, Mr. Garrison covers a variety of topics pertaining to the Civil War.

Now, I have to say that this is not a history book in the way that most people think of history books. It's more of what I would call an anecdote book. The book is divided into 9 different sections. Each section focuses on a different topic and each section is then divided into 2-4 paragraphs focusing on an individual person, event or subject.  Since it's laid out this way, you can choose to read for 5 minutes or for 5 hours.

I found the topics interesting and it's an easy read. You would have to actually have an interest in history though to find this book interesting. It's not a general reader. All in all, it's a pretty good book and for history buffs, it's one you might want to add to your shelf.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book as a Book Sneeze book reviewer. All comments, thoughts and opinions are 100% mine because we all know that I hate to be told what to think or say. ;)
