PRAISE FOR MARK PERRY:
“Mark Perry…has made their dual biography the basis for an ambitious book, a history of the North and South from before the war to the end of Reconstruction. That he succeeds so well is remarkable.”
– The New York Times Book Review
“A thoughtful, moving, and wonderfully readable account of two valiant men, the war that brought them together, and the ideologies that ultimately kept them apart.”
– Cleveland Plain Dealer
