The Civil WarBook - 2004
The American Civil War cost more human lives than any other war in American history. New definitions of nationhood and citizenship emerged from the conflict as the North first blocked the break-up of the Union and then moved on to abolish the South's "peculiar institution" by force of arms. This anthology examines the war's root causes, developments between the firing on Fort Sumter and the surrender at Appomattox, and the lasting significance of the war in American history.
