Freedom National: The Destruction of Slavery in the United States, 1861-1865
by Oakes, James
xxiv, 595 pp. Winner of The Gilder Lehrman Lincoln Prize, "this groundbreaking history upends the consensus view that the main purpose of the North in fighting the Civil War was to restore the Union, with emancipation adopted only when it became necessary to Union victory. 'Freedom National' shows instead that these goals were intertwined from secession to abolition. The result is a fresh view of the Civil War and the definitive history of emancipation." Black and white maps and photos included.
