Legendary Heroes of U.S. History--As You've Never Seen Them Before

Secret Lives of the Civil War features irreverent and uncensored profiles of men and women from the Union and the Confederacy--complete with hundreds of little-known and downright bizarre facts. You'll discover that:

- Mary Todd Lincoln claimed to receive valuable military strategies from ghosts in the spirit
- Jefferson Davis once imported camels for soldiers stationed in the American southwest.
- Ulysses S. Grant spent much of the Vicksburg campaign on a horse named "Kangaroo."
- James Longstreet fought the Battle of Antietam wearing carpet slippers.
- William T. Sherman was the victim of two shipwrecks on the same day.
- Harriet Tubman experienced frequent and bizarre hallucinations.
- Stonewall Jackson was a notorious hypochondriac (he always sat up straight, fearing that
slouching would compress his vital organs).

With chapters on everyone from William Quantrill (a guerilla leader whose skull later ended up in the basement of a fraternity house) to Rose O'Neal Greenhow (perhaps the South's most glamorous spy), Secret Lives of the Civil War features a mix of famous faces and unsung heroes. American history was never this much fun in school
