There is an extraordinary range of material in this anthology. Lincoln's Gettysburg address is here and so too is a contemporary account of a visit from the Ku Klux Klan. The primary sources reproduced are both visual and written, and the secondary sources present a remarkable breadth and quality of relevant scholarship. The book encourages its readers to "listen in" and make sense of the conversations of historians-and to join them by interpreting material related to their arguments. Each section begins with a preface that pulls together secondary and primary sources, and introductions to the primary sources Web that will offer further avenues for exploration. Primary documents such as poetry, short stories, editorials, newspaper articles, speeches, illustrations, and political cartoons, as well as more personal documents like letters and diary entries, round out each section. Bibliographies and a timeline are also included, making this an authoritative, easy-to-use primer on the best research and writings about the American Civil War and Reconstruction.

?This anthology of sources for the Civil War era is a well contextualized collection of documents and secondary sources. Highlighted sections ask thought-provoking questions, directing students? attention and challenging them to come to grips with the complexities of this era. This book is an extraordinary contribution to teaching. It is the textbook that teachers dream of finding.? Orville Vernon Burton, University of Illinois

"The pulling together of all this material into one coherent volume represents a considerable editorial achievement, and one that highlights not just the most recent scholarly approaches to Civil War but also some of the reasons for the subject's perennial fascination for students, academics and the public alike." Journal of American Studies
