Book Description:

The Civil War Era is a marvelous collection of Civil War scholarship and literature, containing readings, documents, and editorial commentary on the Civil War and its aftermath. Covering the political and military strategies, as well as the social and cultural history of the soldiers, their families, slaves, and slave owners, the book explores the intersections of regions, races, and genders. The essays combine both older and more recent scholarship. An introduction adds historiographic detail about the older work, and covers how it fits in subsequent historical and political conversations. The book teaches how to listen to and make sense of the conversations of historians-and how to join them by interpreting material related to their arguments. Each section begins with a preface that pulls together secondary and primary sources, and introduces the primary sources and web sites that will offer further venues for exploration. Primary documents such as poetry, short stories, editorials, newspaper articles, speeches, illustrations, and political cartoons, as well as more personal documents like letters and diary entries, round out each section. Bibliographies and a timeline are also included, making this an authoritative, easy-to-use primer on the best research and writings about the Civil War era.

The book encourages its readers to "listen in" and make sense of the conversations of historians-and to join them by interpreting material related to their arguments.

Each section begins with a preface that pulls together secondary and primary sources, and introductions to the primary sources Web that will offer further avenues for exploration. Primary documents such as poetry, short stories, editorials, newspaper articles, speeches, illustrations, and political cartoons, as well as more personal documents like letters and diary entries, round out each section. Bibliographies and a timeline are also included, making this an authoritative, easy-to-use primer on the best research and writings about the American Civil War and Reconstruction.
