This text explores the adventure and lure of America's greatest conflict - the American Civil War. It introduces figures such as Southern spy Belle Boyd, forgotten slave hero Robert Smalls, and towering leaders Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant. It examines Bull Run, Gettysburg and other battles that changed the history of a nation. The guide also looks at the personal side of this conflict - from the homespun uniforms worn by Confederate volunteers, to rousing military marches and propaganda posters, to the touching photographs of fighting men and the people they left behind.
