On Tuesday, October 2nd at 7pm, the River Forest Public Library will be exploring the Civil War with historian Robert Girardi in the Roosevelt Middle School auditorium. The years 2011-2015 mark the Sesquicentennial celebration of the Civil War. Girardi will be exploring, among other things, the nature of the Civil War and why it is something that still fascinates us 150 years later. To get into the Civil War mindset, so to speak, I though it would be fun to create a list of fantastic fiction and nonfiction books that focus on the Civil War. Happy reading!
Check out RFPL Reads for a great listing of fiction and nonfiction books about the Civil War.
