RE: Best Non-Fiction Book Ever

In the name of accuracy, it’s probably James M. McPherson’s Battle Cry of Freedom, but my sentimental vote is for John M. Barry’s Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How it Changed America. Absolutely gripping look at the economic development of the South, race relations, the corruption of Louisiana, race relations, and a host of other topics. Would make a great HBO miniseries.
