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.
