American Civil War Reading Challenge 2009

Marny is hosting the American Civil War Reading Challenge for next year. Click here to go to the post for this challenge.

The Rules:
1.Read 12 books about the Civil War, either fiction or non-fiction (I've posted a booklist on this blog if someone needs ideas)
2. Read these books between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009
3. Overlaps with other challenges are allowed
4. Ebooks and audiobooks are okay as well
5. Leave me a comment so I can add you to this list with the participants on the left

Stay tuned for a post where I list the books I hope to get to. I'm going to have to do some searching for this one. The reason I want to join this challenge? I honestly don't really know much of anything about the civil war, and I should. Recently I've been getting more interested in reading books about the civil war, either fiction or non-fiction. So...I'm hoping this challenge will be the push I need.

Do any of you have some really good civil war books you can recommend?

I've read a couple of Civil War stories but the only one that pops into my head is Gone With the Wind. Sorry :(

Lisa - very true! haha! But..it's a subject I'm interested in so let's hope it gives me the kick needed to read more about it.

Ladytink - you know, I couldn't even get through the movie! I know, I have to be one of the only ones since everyone seems to love it. So I doubt I'll read the book. haha!
