Nancy Gentry has captured that wonderful feeling of being educated and entertained in the same moment in time. Her ability to tell a story that reads seamlessly, is a gift. It's amazing that the story Rebel in Petticoats can intrigue one into wanting to read on and read quickly, and at the same time educate on the day to day realities, and hardships, that the Civil War brought upon so many people, for so (too) long.
Having been brought up in the "North"...Ft Wayne, Indiana and Chicago, Illinois, my perspective on the Civil War was a bit biased and naive. Rebel in Petticoats has peaked my interest to learn more as to the exact nature of the Civil War...from both sides...both sides "winners" and both sides "losers".
My only criticism of Rebel in Petticoats is that it was not longer...although, in retrospect, when Nancy Gentry is trying to capture the imagination and hold the attention of today's generation of "Orange Cover Biographies" her mission was accomplished.
My "Blue Northern" hat is off to her as I now look for a "grey" version to put next to it.
