Used in civil war research. A great piece of work.

Louis Baltz captured the essence of what is must have been like to be at Cold Harbor in 1864, in what turned out to be the bloodiest 30 minutes of the entire Civil War. How scared were the men in blue? How confident were the men in gray? The battle of Cold Harbor has long been a fascination of mine and any writing I can get my hands on I read. This is by far the best I have ever read.
