    Secrets of the Civil War did not really have that many "secrets" but it was a well put together slick magazine with a short, interesting history of the war between the states. If you have guests and one starts reading it you will lose their attention for a time if they are at all interested in the civil war. The usual photographs along with synopses on the people and battles, along with some of the historical research conducted on the war. A good read for anyone.
