The Civil War is an immensely impactful chapter of American history. We know the names of its important players and continuously grapple with the various issues that surrounded it, issues that remain prevalent in our social and political dialogues today. This set of 4 volumes about the war – one for every year it was fought – offers firsthand accounts with letters, diaries, speeches, poems, songs, memoirs, and more. It’s perfect for history buffs and anyone seeking perspective on events that shaped the country.
