Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When first published, Daily Life in Civil War America shifted the spotlight from the conflict's military operations and famous leaders to its affect on day-to-day living. Now this popular, groundbreaking work returns in a thoroughly updated new edition, drawing on an expanded range of journals, journalism, diaries, and correspondence to capture the realities of wartime life for soldiers and citizens, slaves and free persons, women and children, on both sides of the conflict.

In addition to chapter-by-chapter updating, the edition features new chapters on two important topics: the affects of the war on families, focusing on the absence of men on the home front and the plight of nearly 26,000 children orphaned by the war; and the activities of the Copperheads, anti-Confederate border residents, and other Southern pacifist groups.

Book News Annotation:

This work on the daily lives of ordinary soldiers and civilians caught up on both sides of the Civil War features about 50 b&w historical photos, posters, and illustrations, many from the authors' own collection. It offers details on food, drink, shelter, recreation, religion, mourning, and the horrors of battle, and spotlights the roles of women, slaves, free persons, and children in the conflict. This second edition draws on additional primary sources; it contains new chapters on the effects of the war on families, and the activities of Southern pacifist groups and anti-Confederate border residents. A chronology and a glossary are included. Dorothy Volo is program coordinator and president of a local historical society. James Volo has served as a consultant for film and television documentaries dealing with the American Revolution and the Civil War. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

No event in U.S. history has been written about more than the Civil Wara convulsive era that impacted every Americanand not just the over 600,000 who fought in it.
