Description

In the early morning of April 12, 1861, Captain George S. James ordered the bombardment of Fort Sumter, beginning a war that would last four horrific years and claim many lives. Since that day, the debate over the causes of American Civil War has never ceased. This book brings together a collection of voices to recapture the feel of a very different time and place, helping to explain the commencement of America's bloodiest war.show more
