695. This Hallowed Ground: The Story of the Union Side of the Civil War, by Bruce Catton (read 7 May 1962) This is the first book I read by Bruce Catton. I liked it well. ( )

A history of the Civil War campaigns from the Union Army perspective, I cannot say whether this is a good or bad book on the subject. I found once I had begun it that my interest in the subject was null. It was written for youth, the illustrations were either old drawings or photos of army soldiers. Perhaps my children would have been able to get through this if they were assigned it in school, but I was not, so I quit reading it. ( )

A vivid, anecdotal narrative history of the Civil War. This was the first hard-cover book that I bought, at the Yale Co-Op in about 1964 ( )

Vividly written but a little dated in its attitudes, especially its
hostility to the Radical Republicans ( )

To Nellie Catton
First words
The senator was tall and handsome, with wavy hair to frame a proud ravaged face, and if hearty feeding had given him the beginning of a notable paunch, he was erect enough to carry it well.
