Guerrillas, Unionists, and violence on the Confederate home front
In 11 essays, Civil War scholars throw light on war violence that happened far from the battlefields of the South, often between members of the same family or community. Among the topics are guerrilla war and extralegal violence in a north Georgia community, east Tennessee unionists during the war and Reconstruction, and the limits of dissent and loyalty in Texas.
