Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Highly informative and entertaining…propels the reader light years beyond dull textbooks and Gone with the Wind.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

It has been 150 years since the opening salvo of Americas War Between the States. New York Times bestselling author Ken Davis tells us everything we never knew about our nations bloodiest conflict in Dont Know Much About ® the Civil War—another fascinating and fun installment in his acclaimed series.

Synopsis:

Millions of Americans, bored by dull textbooks, are in the dark about the most significant event in our history. Here, the "New York Times" bestselling author deftly sorts out the players, the politics, and the key events of the Civil War.

Synopsis:

Why did Abraham Lincoln sneak into Washington for his inauguration? Was the Gettysburg Address written on the back of an envelope?Where did the Underground Railroad run?

Can you answer these questions? If not, you're not alone! New York Times-bestselling author Kenneth C. Davis comes to the rescue, deftly sorting out the players, the politics, the key events — Emancipation and Reconstruction, Shiloh and Gettysburg, Generals Grant and Lee, Harriet Beecher Stowe — and providing little-known facts that will enthrall even learned Civil War buffs. Vivid, informative, and hugely entertaining, Don't Know Much About® the Civil War is the only book you'll ever need on "the war that never ended."

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [489]-505) and index.
