Ten best novels about the US Civil War

The staff of the Christian Science Monitor came up with a list of the ten best novels of the U.S. Civil War.

One title on the list:
The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara

This 1975 Pulitzer Prize winner tells the story of the horrendous four-day Gettysburg Battle from the perspective of various protagonists on both sides of the divide. This is the book that Civil War documentarian Ken Burns says "changed my life."
Read about the other books on the list.
