Curiosities of the Civil War by Webb Garrison {a book review}

curiosities

Do you like history?  Do you want to know more about the War Between the States and how America came to be? Are you a fan of random facts?

Then the book Curiosities of the Civil War: Strange Stories, Infamous Characters, & Bizarre Events by author Webb Garrison is for you!  Even if you think you are a Civil War buff, I can almost guarantee that there will be new tidbits of information that you will glean from reading this book.

The Civil War is known for being the bloodiest in American History but this book looks beyond the atrocities to recount bizarre tidbits as well as stories of some of the little known, everyday heroes.

I am not really a history buff but I do tend to like random tidbits of information.  This book held my interest throughout and went beyond the traditional history to give you more of the story.  I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn more than just the traditional perspectives.
