Hiram's Honor listed in Online Colleges Top 25 Books for Studying the Civil War

I just learned that Hiram's Honor was chosen by Online Colleges for their listing of the top 25 books for studying the Civil War.  This list is headed by The Civil War: A Narrative by Shelby Foote and concluded by Confederates in the Attic: Dispatches from the Unfinished Civil War by Tony Horowitz.  The heading for the list follows and the listing can be seen here

"Few events have shaped American history like the Civil War, yet many, aside from educators, re-enactors, and history buffs, don’t know the full story of the battle between the states. While there are hundreds of books out there on the Civil War that are worth reading (for those who have the time and inclination), we’ve collected a few of the best here that will let you see the war from a variety of different viewpoints. We’ve selected books that cover specific battles, the lives of soldiers, civilian life, major political figures, and even the long-term effects of the war on how we see race in America today to give you a well-rounded background on the subject. Whether you’re a Civil War aficionado or just want to learn a bit more about this epic conflict, reading the books on this list will help you get well on your way to becoming an expert."
