Just in time for Christmas, a new book is out for the Civil War or military history buff you know - (which may be YOU). It's called the "West Point History of the Civil War". This is a book based on the "art of war" classes taught to the cadets at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The co-editor of the book is Colonel Ty Seidule - the Head of the Department of History at West Point. As a history nut, I think that has to be one of the coolest jobs out there.

This last week, I had the opportunity to interview Colonel Seidule, about the book and West Point and Civil War history. I figured it might make for a cool Christmas present for somebody you know AND I wanted to pick Col. Seidule's brain about the Civil War.
