Book Description:

The bloodiest armed conflict ever fought on our soil, the Civil War had profound consequences for American society. It left a scar on the nation's psyche that has not yet completely healed. Politics, race relations, religion, literature, popular culture—no aspect of America has been unaffected by the Civil War.
