BTC’s Take: A look at how competing groups fought to have the Battle of the Crater remembered during Reconstruction and beyond. This is a good companion to any of the books which are strictly military histories of the Battle of the Crater.

      Publisher Info:

      In Remembering The Battle of the Crater: War is Murder, Kevin M.
