From the TALK series, The Civil War
Discussion Leader: Sandra Wiechert

The March of Brooks's title is not Sherman's, but Alcott's. In Louisa May Alcott's classic "Little Women," the father of the girls of the March family is absent for much of the novel, serving as a chaplain for Union forces during the Civil War. Brooks's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel reimagines the absent March as an abolitionist with utopian inclinations, testing his ideological commitments in the theatre of war. 280 pp.
