Cry Havoc: The Crooked Road to Civil War, 1861

Just finished this excellent book by Nelson Lankford.  True history buffs as well as "revisionists" (they know who they are but they won't admit it) will find lots of interesting stuff in this book.  One of my favorite parts concerns one of those state and local militias that existed at the time.  Apparently some of those were basically "drinking and marching societies."  One of them, the Potomac Light Infantry of Georgetown in the District of Columbia, disbanded shortly before the "war of Northern aggression" started.  I think before the actual outbreak of real hostility but after the firing on Ft. Sumter.  At their closing meeting, this toast was offered by one of their members: "Invincible in peace, invisible in war."
