“The Civil War: Strange & Fascinating Facts,” by Burke Davis, Wing Books, Avenel, NJ, 1982 edition. This 249-page hardback is a collection of 38, two to nine page articles on details of the Civil War. Some of the best describe the adoption of the Gatling Gun, the Hunley submarine, and the Gettyburg Address. Many describe officers in the war including Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, US Grant, and Nathan Bedford Forrest. The stories tend to emphasize the southern point of view.

This is a pleasant read. History buffs will find it interesting. Drawings. Bibliography.
