    2. Boom. Research done. This was actually pretty well written and interesting, and just the right length. Also, if you ever happen to see it sitting around somewhere, like at a yard sale: Chapter 8 is literally the best, simplest, and most concise explanation of how the Civil War started that I have ever read.
