— Barrett R. Richardson; Virginian-Pilot
The book is a bargain for its targeted audience. It provides excellent primary source information from a wide variety of manuscript collections and collections of individual letters.
— Richard J. Blumberg; Civil War News
Burnham paints a macabre scene of a mixture of events from the Civil War, or more accurately, The War Between the States. He stirs together a mess of humanity in the boiling cauldrons of Southern battlefields and Northern prison camps.
— Bill Ward; Salisbury Post
