The following are several books that I'd suggest if you want to know more about the American Civil War and the very unique city of Washington. D.C. Here are a few - and I mean "few" because the American Civil War is the subject of an enormous number of books across every literary genre. I think these selections will be of particular interest to readers of Stand The Storm.
