REVIEW: ANDERSONVILLE by Edward M. Erdelac
ANDERSONVILLE is intense, compelling, exceptional, outstanding, and a definite BEST OF 2015! [It's also not your father's Civil War history--with apologies to MacKinlay Kantor.] If you're looking for an inside view of the horrors of Camp Sumter [Andersonville], you'll find it here--along with references to Libby Prison and Camp Thunder (both in Richmond). If you want to examine man's I humanity to man, you'll find that here too, along with superb, engrossing, writing. But that's not all. ANDERSONVILLE is an introductory education into Hoodoo, Voudoun, Cabala, and the Western magickal tradition. ANDERSONVILLE is hell on earth--literally and metaphysically.
[My first visit to Andersonville National Park in 1974, then again in 1995. For the past 9.5 years, I have been living 11 miles away.]
