Children for the Union: The War Spirit on the Northern Home Front – History of the US Civil War

Marten, James A.
Dee 2004 Dewey Dec. 973.7

“The Civil War influenced virtually every aspect of children’s lives, and in turn they eagerly incorporated the experience of war into their daily assumptions and activities… History of the US Civil War. On the home front, children became almost full-fledged members of their communities in their support of the war effort. They left school to replace absent men on farms and in factories, helped raise funds for hospitals and other soldiers’ causes, and volunteered to knit socks, pick lint, and perform other necessary duties… Northern children’s lives were militarized as never before, from the toys and games and stories that were overwhelmed by images of warfare and pro-Union ideals to actual military service by under-age soldiers and drummer boys… Children for the Union opens a new window on the impact of the war and shows that the youngest Americans were inevitable and enthusiastic participants in the nation’s worst crisis. Abundantly illustrated.” -Publisher. History of the US Civil War.

McPherson, James M.
Oxford Univ. 1990 Dewey Dec. 973.7

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian James McPherson “offers a series of thoughtful and engaging essays on aspects of Lincoln and the war that have rarely been discussed in depth… The Civil War was the single most transforming and defining experience in American history, and Abraham Lincoln remains the most important figure in the pantheon of our mythology. These graceful essays, written by one of America’s leading historians, offer fresh and unusual perspectives on both.” -Publisher. History of the US Civil War.

Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era – History of the US Civil War

McPherson, James M.
Oxford Univ. 1998 Dewey Dec. 973.7

“‘Battle Cry of Freedom’ will unquestionably become the standard one-volume history of the Civil War. James McPherson’s fast-paced narrative fully integrates the political, social, and military events that crowded the two decades from the outbreak of one war in Mexico to the ending of another at Appomattox. Packed with drama and analytical insight, the book vividly recounts the momentous episodes that preceded the Civil War–the Dred Scott decision, the Lincoln-Douglas debates, John Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry–and then moves into a masterful chronicle of the war itself–the battles, the strategic maneuvering on both sides, the politics, and the personalities… This authoritative volume makes sense of that vast and confusing “second American Revolution” we call the Civil War.” -Publisher.

1917 Dewey Dec. 973.7

Ken Burns’s The Civil War: Historians Respond – History of the US Civil War

Toplin, Robert B. et al.
Oxford Univ. 1996 Dewey Dec. 973.7

“Ken Burns’s documentary The Civil War made television history, breaking all viewing records for a PBS series. Indeed, forty million people saw it… For a generation of Americans, this documentary is the Civil War. Yet many professional historians criticized it sharply for ignoring the roles of minorities, pointing to a lack of women and of blacks throughout, a disregard for the aftermath of the war (particularly its legacy to race relations), a conventional emphasis on military history rather than social history, and uneven coverage of the military campaigns that gave short shrift to the bloody Western front. [This book] brings together detractors, supporters, and Ken Burns himself in a volume that will inspire readers to look again at this stunning documentary, at the way television shows history, and at the Civil War itself.” -Publisher. History of the US Civil War.

Like Men of War: Black Troops in the Civil War, 1862-1865 – History of the US Civil War

Trudeau, Noah Andre
Back Bay 1999 Dewey Dec. 973.7

In 1862 – more than a year into the Civil War – most Americans believed that blacks did not have the courage, intelligence, or discipline to make combat soldiers. But by war’s end, more then 175,000 African Americans had served in the Union Army. From the first actions along the Mississippi River to the celebrated attack on Fort Wagner to the final skirmishes of the war, black troops more than proved their courage. Like Men of War recounts the complete, battle-by-battle history of these soldiers, beginning with the first unofficial ex-slave regiments and the push to organize all-black federal regiments. Drawing on newspapers, soldiers’ diaries, and letters, acclaimed Civil War historian Noah Andre Trudeau offers a richly textured and unforgettable account of African-American soldiers in battle. This thoroughly researched and engaging history brings these soldiers vividly to life in their own words as they relate their battle experiences and their thoughts on the war and race. History of the US Civil War.

Life in the Confederate Army – History of the US Civil War

Being the Observations and Experiences of an Alien in the South during the American Civil War

Watson, William
London: Chapman & Hall 1887 Dewey Dec. 973.7

In 1861 William Watson, a native Scot who had established himself as a Louisiana businessman, enlisted in the Confederate forces although still a British subject. In 1887 he penned his memoirs “to give,” he said, “a simple narrative of my experience in a war campaign.” Far from simple, Watson’s work clearly and forcefully describes his experiences with the 3rd Louisiana Infantry in battles at Wilson’s Creek and Pea Ridge while depicting the mundane aspects of camp life and providing delightful and colorful character sketches of fellow soldiers and officers, including the legendary General Ben McCulloch.
But Watson offers much more than the story of a soldier’s life. He also provides an excellent depiction of southern society undergoing the crisis of secession and the tumultuous early years of the Civil War. Watson’s status as an alien made him keenly aware of the culture of his adopted home, and the first twelve chapters of his work stand alone as a superb primary account of antebellum southern society and politics. History of the US Civil War.

The Life of Johnny Reb; The Common Soldier of the Confederacy – History of the US Civil War

Wiley, Bell Irvin
Louisiana State Univ. 1993 Dewey Dec. 973.7

The Life of Johnny Reb is not about the battles and skirmishes fought by the Confederate foot soldier. Rather, it is an intimate history of the soldier’s daily life – the songs he sang, the foods he ate, the hopes and fears he experienced, the reasons he fought. Wiley has examined countless letters, diaries, newspaper accounts, and official records in constructing this frequently poignant, sometimes humorous account of the life of Johnny Reb. Originally published in 1943. History of the US Civil War.

Bitterly Divided: The South’s Inner Civil War – History of the US Civil War

Williams, David
New Press 2008 Dewey Dec. 973.7

Bitterly Divided reveals that the South was in fact fighting two civil wars—the external one that we know so much about, and an internal one about which there is scant literature and virtually no public awareness. In this fascinating look at a hidden side of the South’s history, David Williams shows the powerful and little-understood impact of the thousands of draft resisters, Southern Unionists, fugitive slaves, and other Southerners who opposed the Confederate cause.
“This fast-paced book will be a revelation even to professional historians. . . . His astonishing story details the deep, often murderous divisions in Southern society. Southerners took up arms against each other, engaged in massacres, guerrilla warfare, vigilante justice and lynchings, and deserted in droves from the Confederate army . . . Some counties and regions even seceded from the secessionists . . . With this book, the history of the Civil War will never be the same again.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review.

This Great Struggle: America’s Civil War – History of the US Civil War

Woodworth, Steven E.
Rowman & Littlefield 2011 Dewey Dec. 973.7

Noted historian Steven E. Woodworth tells the story of what many regard as the defining event in United States history. While covering all theaters of war, he emphasizes the importance of action in the region between the Appalachians and the Mississippi River in determining its outcome. Woodworth argues that the Civil War had a distinct purpose that was understood by most of its participants: it was primarily a conflict over the issue of slavery. The soldiers who filled the ranks of the armies on both sides knew what they were fighting for. The outcome of the war—after its beginnings at Fort Sumter to the Confederate surrender four years later—was the result of the actions and decisions made by those soldiers and millions of other Americans.
