SummaryJoin us for a book group at the Fremont Branch. Everyone is welcome. This month’s title is "The March" by E.L. Doctorow.
Book Description"The March" is a historical fiction novel set in late 1864 and early 1865 near the conclusion of the American Civil War. Central to the novel is the character of General William Tecumseh Sherman as he marches his 60,000 troops through the heart of the South, carving a 60-mile-wide scar of destruction in their wake. While the novel revolves around the decisions of General Sherman, the novel has no specific main character. Instead, Doctorow retells the Civil War history according to the individual lives of a large and diverse cast of characters-white and black, rich and poor, Union and Confederate-whose lives are caught up in the violence and trauma of war.
