Synopsis: The American Civil War began with division and culminated in devastation for both sides, a President slain and a bitter reconstruction ahead. The speeches in this volume represent the fierce sectional passions that led up to the war and accompanied its many swings in fortune; included are addresses by Lincoln, as great a pragmatist as he was idealist; by Confederate leaders such as Jefferson Davis and Alexander Stephens; by defenders of "King Cotton" and crusaders against the evils of slavery.

Review: "This collection brings together speeches by some of the most distinguished political leaders of the twentieth century together with political analysis. Each speech is introduced by a brief historical and political discussion, and a general introduction gives a helpful overview and precise historical context. The combination of the original speeches and the present day analysis provides a fine starting point for reports and class discussion."
-- "Booklist" (May 2003)
