Civil War books in weird places
You never know where your next Civil War books are going to come from. Sunday we were getting the oil changed in my wife's car. There's a Big Lots located in the same shopping center as the Firestone. Having a half hour or so to kill we walked over. I walked out with the following books all priced at only $3 each. Hardcovers none the less in perfect brand new condition.
1) 1864: Lincoln at the Gates of History. Written by Charles Bracelen Flood
2) Lincoln President Elect. Written by Harold Holzer
3) Cavalryman of the Lost Cause: A Biography of J.E.B. Stuart. Written by Jeffry D. Wert
If you have a Big Lots near you it might be worth a stop. They had a really large assortment of bargain price hardcovers and trade paperbacks. You never know what you'll find.
