Thank you for the post. Dr. Faust's book is on my short list of books to read as soon as possible. I have been professionally and personally interested in how society and individuals view death and how they mourn. I look forward to reading this contribution to an underdeveloped area of Civil War history.

I just got this book the other day and plan to read it when I catch up with my other books I am currently reading.

I have always been more interested in reading about the social life during the war, because it is totally different from how we live today and it is interesting to pass this along to the spectators.
