Civil War books

The Michigan Civil War Blog analyzes Civil War Interactive's new voter list of best Civil War books, looking for Michigan connections. (I'll need to check out the Kansas one.) I observe that the rankings seem to fluctuate pretty sharply. (How many people vote on these, anyway?) Grant's Memoirs, a finely crafted book from a Midwesterner without whom we might not have the Union as we know it today, polled 7th last time and now falls to 38th. Read it anyway.
