A Sail to the Past 2014 Wrap Up Post

I'm glad I set this at Scholar, as I did manage to read five books, which puts me firmly in that category. I'd hoped to read seven, but that just didn't happen. So I did manage to complete this one...but I'm still a bit disappointed as I'd hoped to read more.
I need to try harder next year to take time for non-fiction books.
1) Gettysburg by Stephen Sears : Review here. Analysis post: here.
2) The Civil War in 50 Objects: Review here.
3) The Smithsonian's History of America in 101 Objects: Review here.
