Work in Progress #research
As a part of the program, they've selected several books to accompany the discussions.
-"March" by Geraldine Brooks
-"America's War" an anthology
-"Crossroads of Freedom" by James M. McPherson
These materials pull us into the world of the Civil War through historical fiction, speeches, and journals.
I have been amazed at the stories. Until I began the research for my WIP, I'd never read some of the selected materials.
I don't know if there are any history buffs out there, but if there are I would suggest reading America's War. It's really been a truly eye opening piece for me.
