“How long must our dear land be desolated by the ravages and our bravest sacrificed upon thy altars?”
What was it like to live through the turmoil of the Civil War as it exploded day by day? Robert Denney takes readers on an unforgettable journey through the years that disunited a nation. His chronological daily entries, abundantly illustrated with period images and maps, create an enthralling chronicle of the war's evolution. At the same time, the words of actual participants caught in the crossfire--drawn from diaries, letters, and books--provide a moving and personal perspective on the larger narrative.
