A fascinating book, and a must-read for any Civil War or American history buff. My only complaint is that there’s nothing in the pictures to help the reader put the artifacts into perspective size-wise. Dimensions aren’t included in all the accompanying explanations and it’s hard to judge the size of some of the artifacts displayed just from the picture.
