    This collection of narratives, all told by people who were actually part of the American Civil War, was first published in 1885 and was received very well by the public, who caused it to have a further five reprints during the next few years. You'll hear about a number of famous escapades that took place during the Civil War, from a civilian with Unionist sympathies but living in the South, through to the unparalleled locomotive chase that inspired Buster Keaton's all time classic silent movie The General.
