I Used to Know That: Civil War

I Used to Know That: Civil War is a great way for anyone to either learn about the basics of the Civil War or review the things that you may have forgotten from school.

The book is broken up into three main sections, The Antebellum Period, The War Between the States, and The Reconstruction Era. The book does a really great job of identifying exactly what caused the Civil War, and who the predominant people of the era were.

From Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant to Jefferson Davis and of course, Abraham Lincoln, this book includes very in depth introductions and conclusions.

Interistingly enough, I found myself remembering the facts of the Civil War as I read along, recalling things that I learned several years ago.

If you are looking for an in depth textbook of the Civil War, look elsewhere; but if you are looking for a nice review, or to learn the basics, this is definitely the book for you.

Disclosure: I received I Used to Know That: Civil War from FSB Associates in exchange for an honest review.
