I just finished reading While in the hands of the enemy: Military Prisons of the Civil War by Charles W. Sanders Jr.

I’ve got to say it is a most powerful book that takes aim at some of the most ingrained ideas of what caused the breakdown of the Prisoner of War system in both the North and the South. Those looking for a book that shows how their “side” acted in the right will not be too happy with Mr. Sanders’ conclusions.

I am going to take a few days to digest it and hope to have a review up soon.

Back when we first published the Civil War Research Guide, a friend of mine reviewed it for a local paper here in Charleston. He surprised me this morning by digging the review out of his files in posting it on his blog – Ashcanrantings.

Besides going there to see the review, I highly suggest just taking a spin to hear some of the best up and coming music out there on free and legal downloads. To top it off, any revenue generated by the site goes directly to charity – a pretty neat idea for sure.
