Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book contains a rich sampling of Civil War storytelling of all types — personal narratives, anecdotes, hero tales, jests, strange tales, and fables. Culled from a wide variety of contemporary sources — letters, diaries, newspapers, periodicals, and pamphlets — readers will discover how the people of the times speak to us in voices that are still fresh and meaningful to us today. Voices are those of Abe Lincoln and Robert E. Lee, of slaves, scouts, and spies of the boys in blue and gray, and the girls they left behind, of doctors, chaplains, nurses, correspondents, and a host of others.
