Soft cover. xvi, 164 pp. B&W photos and maps. Fine. Illinois Rebels will be unwelcome by Civil War enthusiasts who see our greatest national calamity from a totally partisan point of view - whether that partisanship be pro-Confederate or pro-Union. It is certain to be rejected by those who loudly proclaim the epic drama to be a clear case of the good guys (us) versus the bad guys (them). But for those who appreciate the horrible ironies of history, this book can serve as one more grim reminder of the terrifying reality that was the War Between the States.
