Next month I'll combine this with my January summation but I'm still feeling my way on what i want to do with this blog.
Best of January: Gettysburg by Stephen Sears
This one both surprised me and didn't. I knew it was suppose to be a good book on the subject but was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. One of the best summations of those days I've heard.
Worst of January: Barksdale's Charge by Philip Thomas Tucker
As this was a DNF, I almost felt I shouldn't count it. However, the next book, while not great, doesn't deserve this title so here we are. While this might have been meticulously researched (though I don't think much of the way he cites that information), his theories were unproven within the text and his writing less the ideal. I hope to not have to deal with another like this for the rest of this year.
