I frequently recommend this book to just about anyone I run across with even half an interest in the American Civil War. It is a wonderful new way to see some of the significant events of the civil war as seen from a horse's perspective. And what better horse than "Traveller".
I will agree that it helps to have some knowledge of the comings and goings of the Army of Northern Virginia, or you will not have much idea of where you are and at what point during the war. Of course this is perfectly accurate as our horse narrator has no idea of place names. For those readers familiar with the Civil War, you will find yourself recognizing the events described by Traveller and come away with a unique perspective of these campaigns. Antietam and Wilderness will come quickly to the informed reader's mind as Traveller remembers the events of those dark days.
