10 Best Novels About the Civil War
There are lots of different list, this one is by the Christian Science Monitor, and it's pretty good. I am familiar with the first 7 books or movies made from them. Have you read any of them? Did you like the movie or the book better? Which ones would you recommend? Who do you think got left off the list?

the 10 Novels are:
1. The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara
2. North and South by John Jakes
3. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
4. Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
5. Oldest Confederat Widow Tells All by Allan Gurganus
6. Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
7. Shiloh by Shelby Foote
8. March by Geraldine Brooks
9. The Widow of the South by Robert Hicks
10. The March by E L Doctorow

Number 9 sounds interesting. Anyone read it?
Would you please start a seperate thread if you want to start a discussion on a specific book. It will make it easier to look it up later.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
