I just finished The Battle at Bull Run, by William C. Davis. Actually, I read it piecemeal a while back, and I decided I wanted to read it cover-to-cover as I conduct my own research into wartime and antebellum primary sources. The book is incredible, and regardless of whether you are a history buff or just like reading something exciting, I recommend it. The battle was destined to be bloody, but had the outcome been different, the Civil War would conceivably have been significantly shorter.
