America's Civil War provides a detailed overview of post-colonial America that set the stage for war, and vividly describes the course of the conflict that took more American lives than any war in history and altered the course of the nation. Emphasis is placed on the cultural and economic rivalry between the industrial North and the agricultural South and the pivotal rift concerning slavery. The lives of common soldiers, the weapons and methods of warfare, the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, and the role of other significant political and military leaders are among the topics discussed as well as the abolitionist movement, the underground railroad, and dramatic figures such as Harriet Beecher Stowe, and John Brown. Maps, tests, answer key, and extensive bibliography are included.
