The classic one-volume history of the American Civil War simultaneously captures the dramatic scope and intimate experience of that epic struggle, by Pulitzer Prize-winner Bruce Catton.   Covering events from the prelude of the conflict to the death of Lincoln, Catton blends a gripping narrative with deep, yet unassuming, scholarship to bring the war alive on the page in an almost novelistic way. It is this gift for narrative that led contemporary critics to compare this book to War and Peace, and call it a "modern Iliad." Now over fifty years old, This Hallowed Ground remains one of the best-loved and admired general Civil War books: a perfect introduction to readers beginning their exploration of the conflict, as well as a thrilling analysis and reimagining of its events for experienced students of the war.

Outstanding history of the American civil war. Harrowing but beautifully told, with so many blunders that unnecessarily prolonged the war and caused hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths. ( )

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 ( )

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.
