A People's History of the Civil War

ebook
"Does for the Civil War period what Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States did for the study of American history in general." —Library Journal

Historian David Williams has written the first account of the American Civil War as viewed though the eyes of ordinary people—foot soldiers, slaves, women, prisoners of war, draft resisters, Native Americans, and others. Richly illustrated with little-known anecdotes and firsthand testimony, this path-breaking narrative moves beyond presidents and generals to tell a new and powerful story about America's most destructive conflict.

A People's History of the Civil War is a "readable social history" that "sheds fascinating light" on this crucial period. In so doing, it recovers the long-overlooked perspectives and forgotten voices of one of the defining chapters of American history (Publishers Weekly).

"Meticulously researched and persuasively argued." —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
