Synopses & Reviews
Bitterly Divided lays bare the myth of a united confederacy, revealing that the South was in fact fighting two civil warsan external one that we know so much about and an internal one about which there is scant literature and virtually no public awareness. A fascinating look at a hidden side of the Souths history, historian David Williams shows the powerful and little-understood impact of the thousands of draft resisters, Southern Unionists, fugitive slaves, and other Southerners who opposed the Confederate cause.
