Old North Church - This church, built in 1723 in a style inspired by English architect Christopher Wren, is the oldest active church building in Boston. It was where Paul Revere ordered lanterns hung ("one if by land, two if by sea, and I on the opposite shore will be") to notify others of British troop movements prior to the Battles of Lexington and Concord.

Old North Church, Boston, Massachusetts. This church, built in 1723 in a style inspired by English architect Christopher Wren, is the oldest active church building in Boston. It was where Paul Revere ordered lanterns hung ("one if by land, two if by sea, and I on the opposite shore will be") to notify others of British troop movements prior to the Battles of Lexington and Concord.
Old North Church (officially, Christ Church in the City of Boston), at 193 Salem Street, in the North End of Boston, is the location from which the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent. This phrase is related to Paul Revere's midnight ride, of April 18, 1775, which preceded the Battles of Lexington and Concord during the American Revolution.
"One if by land, two if by sea" was the signal used at the Old North Church in the Revolutionary War so the colonials would know if the British were coming across Boston Neck or the Charles River.

War is hell. But Sherman never said that. Read what he DID say in this letter he wrote to Atlanta Mayor James Calhoun.

Nov 11 - 1864 – American Civil War: Sherman's March to the Sea – Union General William Tecumseh Sherman begins burning Atlanta, Georgia to the ground in preparation for his march south.
Sherman's march to the sea. The destruction radius was 50 miles long and went from Atlanta, Georgia, out towards the Atlantic Ocean.
THIS PHOTO DEPICTS SHERMAN'S MARCH TO THE SEA. IT LASTED FROM NOVEMBER TO DECEMBER 1864. SHERMAN'S SOLDIERS MARCHED FROM ATLANTA TO SAVANNAH, BURNING EVERYTHING IN THEIR PATH. THEY DESTROYED THE SOUTH'S INFRASTRUCTURE BY DESTROYING RAILROADS, RUINING THEM FOR THE WAR. GRANT THOUGHT THAT THIS WOULD RUIN THE CONFEDERACY FOR THE REST OF THE WAR. (Wikipedia) Madison Jones 3.20.14
civil war railroads | Sherman's Men Destroying Atlanta Railroads; Barnard, George N., 1819 ...
In a day in which there were no cars or planes, railroads were the fastest means of transportation across land. For this reason, railroads were often the focus of campaigns and battles (i.e. 1st & 2nd Manassas/ Bull Run) in the civil war. During Sherman's "March to the Sea," his men destroyed hundreds of miles of railroad track in order to hamper southern infrastructure. Soldiers would pile the rails over a fire until they were red hot and then bend them into "Sherman's neckties."

In Yankee in Atlanta, Jocelyn Green weaves together the intensity of war with the impact on human lives. We see two women on opposite sides of the battle lines, each experiencing the deprivations of wartime, each reeling from historical events, and each struggling with personal problems. This is Civil War fiction at its best. ~Sarah Sundin. Book giveaway June 30-July 2, 2014!!!
Yankee in Atlanta by Jocelyn Green // This is 3rd in a series and I have loved every single one. I'm a sucker for Civil War era books anyway & anything about Atlanta is a plus! Green has interesting characters, lots of excitement & great historical detail. When I was halfway through I felt like I'd already read a whole book b/c so much had happened. Highly recommend this series!

Do you love reading historical romances during the American Civil War? If you do then you will delight in reading Widow of Gettysburg. I could not wait to read this second book in the series Heroines Behind the Lines. I learned so much about the written time period in book one that I could not wait to get my hands on book two. The books do not need to be read in order, they are separate stories written through first person accounts from women that lived in Gettysburg during the Civil War
