THIS HALLOWED GROUND: The Story of the Union Side of the Civil War

An exciting and fresh recreation of history adds further dimensions through thumbnail sketches of the great figures, through anecdotal material and descriptive matter that livens known history by objectivity and a personal quality- where each serves best. The rowdyism in Kansas, the welding of militia and volunteers, the problems of command that caused repeated disruptions, these and the battles are given an immediacy that will live long in many readers' memories.
