Bruce Catton in The Guns of the SouthEdit

Among the many books Bruce Catton wrote was the narrative portion of The American Heritage Picture History of the Civil War. A copy of the Picture History, 1996 edition, taken back in time from 2014 to the 1860s, became a very valuable reference source for Robert E. Lee after he received a copy stolen by Melvin Bean from the Rivington Men in 1868.
