What does it mean to run the theme?

1. At least one month in advance, you'll let everyone know about the theme and your suggested reading for it. You need to suggest at least 3 works of fiction.
2. On the first of the month, you will post a welcome/introduction/kickoff for the theme.
3. Throughout the month, you'll take an active part in discussion of the theme.

You do not have to be an expert on the theme to run it. You just need to have an interest in it.

Shaara's Killer Angels? It's not entirely fiction, but it sure reads like it.

I love this reading list! It has the added bonus of being "balanced" for North/South points of view.

I would add Killer Angels, too, for a look at the war itself.

Edited to add: Oh, and I would love to help run this. I'm a little bit of a Civil War geek.

Anything by Bahr is good ~ Maybe The Judas Field for a post-war take?
