As war raged on the battlefields of the Civil War killing 620,000 members of the Armed Forces, men and women all over the nation continued their daily routines. They celebrated holidays, ran households, wrote letters, read newspapers, joined unions, attended plays, and graduated from high school and college. This volume reveals how Americans, both Northern and Southern, lived during the Civil War the ways they worked, expressed themselves artistically, organized their family lives, treated illness, and worshipped.

Written by specialists a variety of fields, the chapters in this book cover the war 's impact on the economy, the role of the federal government, labor, welfare and reform efforts, the Indian nations, universities, healthcare and medicine, news coverage, photography, and a host of other topics that flesh out the lives of ordinary Americans who just happened to be living through the biggest conflict in American history.
