Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed sweeping history of a nation at war with itself, told here for the first time by the people who lived it. 

Historian David Williams has written the first account of the American Civil War as viewed though the eyes of ordinary people - foot soldiers, slaves, women, prisoners of war, draft resisters, Native Americans, and others. Richly illuminated with little-known anecdotes and firsthand testimony, this path-breaking narrative moves beyond presidents and generals to tell a new and powerful story about America's most destructive conflict.

There’s things here you didn’t know

Amazingly it’s the great Howard zinn who successfully determined that all the reasons for the civil war are bogus
Abe Lincoln was really a bad guy Jeff Davis was worse
Phil McCracken started it
