Description:
Ten scholars discuss the societal impact of the Civil War conflict in terms of three Americas-- antebellum, wartime, and postbellum war nations-- and recognize the critical role in this transformative era of three groups of Americans-- white northerners, white southerners, and African Americans in the North and South)-- during this decisive period in American history. Contributors address crucial ongoing controversies at the epicenter of the cultural, political, and intellectual history.
