We all know our history, or at least we think we do. When a little gem of a book comes alone like this one, it fascinates and enlightens. I didn't know that Virgil Earp (yes Wyatt's brother) was buried in Portland. The story is fascinating and says a lot about the times during the Civil War era. Two Portland men chased down John Wilkes Booth, and many other stories of people from Oregon who participated in that war so far from here in most people's thoughts. If you are a collector of stories about Oregon, or if you just love a good and entertaining history book, this is the book for you.

The author writes of anything that happened in the Civil War that has the least connection to Oregon as opposed to the Civil War in Oregon. For example, Oregon Senator Baker does volunteer for the Civil War, but dies in Virginia.

I would have enjoyed reading more about the Civil War in Oregon as opposed to the Oregon connection to the Civil War. The shutting down of Democratic newspapers as treasonous in 1862 is dramatic. Perhaps reprinting some of the Albany Oregon Democrat newspaper's editorials calling for Oregonians to "battle" the Republican administration would help explain the Civil War in Oregon.

Even more about what happened in Oregon during the Civil War would have helped to bring illumination to the subject.

This is a great book for anyone interested in what was going on in Oregon during the Civil War. While removed geographically, Oregon was a microcosm of the US as a whole, this book shows. I was particularly intrigued in the chapter on Virgil Earp who was reportedly killed in Tennessee during the Civil War and whose wife moved from Pella, IA only to meet with him 38 years later. Fascinating reading for anyone interested in 19th Century Oregon or the Civil War.
