A historiographical examination of treatments of the Civil War from those that were engaged in it to those of the 1990s. The author argues for the centrality of racial assumptions both in the actual conflict and in conflicting interpretations. He traces how the historians' attitudes and assumptions were partly dictated by time and place and points to an overarching theme of the suppression of the centrality of race in the period following the end of Reconstruction in 1877 and before the emergence of the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s.
