Review quote

No historians have done more to broaden our understanding of the Civil War than Catherine Clinton and Nina Silber. In this new volume, they stretch the boundaries yet again, introducing us to new voices, new subjects, and new ways of looking at old topics. Everyone interested in this central drama of American history should be grateful. * Edward L. Ayers, University of Virginia *show more
