Thanks Civil war Bookshelf!

For linking to my blog.  I believe its a first.  CWB made an excellent point about Lincoln and his views on the Gettysburg campaign. See this post.

I agree completely and its a view you rarely see expressed in Civil War books. It seems the first rule of Civil War publishing  is  NEVER criticize Abraham Lincoln - unless you want to call him as racist.  You see the same attitude toward George Marshall and FDR in WW II history.  I suppose people have their heroes and don't want to buy books that criticize them - even if its the truth.
