Curiosities of the Civil War by Webb Garrison

This books offers a look into the Civil War with unknown facts. It is divided into nine chapters and starts with an Introduction "Every Aspect of the War Produced Its Own Crop of Curiosities."
You will be able to wow people with these facts...one was that horses were more valuable than people. When battle started the officers hid behind trees to save the animals...while the soldiers went ahead into battle.
I found it interesting that some of the wives followed their husbands into battle. They provided them with home cooked meals, and even followed then to prison...can you imagine that happening today? Another remarkable face is that a Confederate prisoner who becomes a Supreme Court Justice.
I enjoyed this book and would recommended it!

I was provided with a free copy of this book by BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review!
