Civil War Re-enactors Battle on, Despite the Heat

July 24, 2011

In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Bull Run at Manassas, Virginia, Civil War re-enactors are fighting it out in heavy wool uniforms, despite the brutal heat we’ve been experiencing. (It seems that they have canceled a few offerings.) See this interesting article about how the thousands of actors are coping.

Here’s a few suggested titles on the subject at EPL, some new and some slightly older:

A. Lincoln; a biography by White, Ronald C.

The Civil War: a Concise History, Masur, Louis, P.

The American Civil War: a Military History by famed military historian John Keegan

Hearts Touched by Fire: The Best of Battles and Leaders of the Civil War.

The library has over 500 items on the subject  “US Civil War.”
