"This might be the best book ever written about a national cemetery. With a depth of knowledge born of decades of work, Donald Pfanz tells in vivid form and in close detail the story of how, over time, a place of struggle became a place of remembrance."--John J. Hennessy, author, Return to Bull Run: The Campaign and Battle of Second Manassas
"Pfanz reveals the horrors of war and the tragic tales of sacrifice that involved incredibly high percentages of unknown dead. Anyone interested in the funeral practices of the Union Army, or in better understanding the sacrifices for freedom, will find this book enlightening."--William A. Blair, author, With Malice toward Some: Treason and Loyalty in the Civil War Era
