Read the trilogy by Bruce Catton. It will transfix you in the same was as Shelby. RIP.

Always glad to see another Catton fan. "A Stillness at Appomattox" is so good it gives me goose-bumps.

I made my way through Shelby Foote's trilogy once, and I doubt I'll ever re-read it, but I go back to Catton time and again. I do love Shelby Foote's novel "Chickamauga." though...and his shorter Civil War books like "Stars in Their Courses: The Gettysburg Campaign."

I believe that book is an extended excerpt from Volume 2 of his Civil War trilogy.
