2. I read her biography of James Henry Hammond

It's excellent, not just a traditional biography but an examination of the Antebellum South.

Here is a piece on her from the website of the National Endowmen for the Humanities: http://www.neh.gov/about/awards/jefferson-lecture/drew-gilpin-faust-biography

5. I read her This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War.

A great work. She collaborated with Ken Burns for an American Experience addressing the same topic. Either one is well worth your time.
