this was a interesting book  Dec 3, 2003
this book talked about several interesting events during the Civil War and is worth reading. It isn't very long so even the casual reader can finish it in a few days. I'd recomend another one of Webb Garrison's books "The Unknown Civil War" which talks about most of the same stuff and some other things
A hodgepodge of interesting facts with no organization  Sep 13, 2000
While this book collects a number of intriguing tales of the Civil War, the lack of a cohesive sense of chronology or organization makes it nothing more than a more detailed Ripley's Believe it or not. While well-researched, it is not very useful as reference material. However if you are looking for some decidedly different tales of the Civil War and don't care about the skewed sense of time , this book is probably worth the trouble.
Intriguing Stories of Sad Times  Apr 26, 2000
As its subtitle implies, Creative Minds in Desperate Times: The Civil War's Most Sensational Schemes and Plots is a series of essays highlighting some of the oddest events and plans of the Civil War, from plans to avoid war to schemes to help speed its end. From assassination plots on both sides of the USA-CSA border to new weapons and even a failed attempt at germ warfare, Garrison has uncovered a staggering array of tales. Some are relatively well-known, such as the development of ironclad warships or John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry; others, however, will be less familiar such as Northern attempts to undermine the Southern economy by printing fake CSA currency or a Southern plot to use infected clothes to spread yellow fever in the North. The essays are organized into six broad themes ("Best-laid Plans;" "Genius at Work;" "Bizarre as a Byzantine Novel;" "Nipped in the Bud;" "Much Ado About Nearly Nothing;" and "Flood Tide of Fraternal Strife"), which makes sense, but I found myself sometimes flipping around trying to piece together the chronology of events and how they flowed from one to the next. That mild complaint aside, the book is well worth having on hand to add spice to any discussion of the Civil War.
