    One thought on “The Blue and the Gray (2 Vols in 1)”

    1. I rated each of the abridged volumes 4 stars. Looking at the unabridged single volume of over 1200 pages of primary source collection and editing, I can't rate this anything other than 5 stars for the sheer effort it would take to create.

    2. A valuable companion to reading Team of Rivals in order to follow the Civil War, in real time dispatches,journals and essays,which completely evoke the temper of the times,just as Kearn's book brings Lincoln the man to life.The Blue and the Gray is a rich, uneven tapestry, told in many voices, by the actual participants of the war and as such is best sampled like a huge feast, in small portions at once. I found myself skimming thru sections that were drier than others and then following every dr [...]

    3. This is a book comprised of two volumes of letters, articles, and reports of battle written by participants ot non-combatant observers. These vignettes are often compelling and fascinating accounts of these battles. I have read several books by Civil War novelist Jeff Shaara, who is noted for his thorough research. I've heard him report that he spends 6 months on research for every 6 months of writing. So far, I have noticed that much of Mr. Shaara's research came from these battle accounts sinc [...]

    4. This was just the most amazing book. It sat on my shelves for a long time until my husband and I decided to read it aloud.These essays, letters and snippets of history were written by the ordinary soldier, if there is such a thing, and officers from both sides of America's Civil War. It presents perspectives of each side about the same battles and includes letters from historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses Grant and Robert E. Lee. It is well worth the time and effort to read of the [...]

    5. It took a while to get through this monster of a book, but I'm so glad that I did. It is a story that I wish every American had a better understanding of. It's also humbling to see this story told from the perspective of dozens of those who actually participated in the struggle. It makes today's troubles pale by comparison. Particularly inspiring are the accounts of those who were intimately acquainted with Lincoln, Grant, and Lee.

    6. Best thing I've ready on Civil War. Is chronological compilation of eyewitness accounts that tell the story of the war. Commager is a first class historian and introduces each account to provide background and context. Only a few uninteresting accounts in 1100 page tome or would be 5 stars! for sure!

    7. Two volumes written by Henry Steel Commanger - classic books. If you are a Civil War student and you do not have these books, your library is sadly deficient.

    8. Two volumes in one book that examines the Union and Confederate armies of the American Civil War. It is a well researched and well written history of the Civil War.
