Great story about a Civil War locomotive chase

I’m currently reading a very well-written and enjoyable book, Stealing the General, by Russell S. Bonds.

It’s the true account of how a band of Union soldiers swept down near Atlanta in April 1862 and stole a locomotive called The General.

They almost got away with it but many would lose their lives by being hanged by the Rebels.
