Reviews

"A profound portrait of a nation in crisis . . . It is both mesmerizing and deeply troubling, and it will forever deepen the way you see this central chapter in our history"
"Extraordinary, imaginatively compiled, and beautifully edited... If there is a richer evocation of those terrible times, I have not seen it."
GEOFFREY C. WARD, co author of "The Civil War" and author of "A First-Class Temperament"
"A profound portrait of a nation in crisis... It will forever deepen the way you see this central chapter in our history. And while this is only the inaugural installment in the series, it does not seem the least bit rash to call this collage of testimony a masterpiece."
MALCOLM JONES, "Newsweek"
"[An] engaging historical narrative... Goes a long way toward answering questions that posterity has debated about the Civil War during the past 150 years."
DANIEL WALKER HOWE, "Bookforum"
