This anthology brings together a wide variety of both well-known and more obscure writing from and about the Civil War, along with supplementary appendices to facilitate its use in courses.
The selections include short fiction, poetry, public addresses, diary entries, song lyrics, and essays from such figures as Walt Whitman, Ambrose Bierce, Stephen Crane, and Louisa May Alcott, as well as Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Jefferson Davis, and Ulysses S. Grant. The writing not only includes those directly involved in the war, but also those writing about the war afterward, to include the perspective of historical memory.
This collection makes a perfect addition to any course on Civil War history or literature as well as courses on popular memory.

For those of us who teach this option at Advanced Higher, this book takes you beyond the confines of the syllabus required for examination purposes and shows the totality and variety of the impact of that conflict and gives a different perspective on events ... I cannot commend this book highly enough.' – History Teaching Review
