Culled from a wide variety of contemporary sources--letters, diaries, newspapers, periodicals, pamphlets--and from the great body of Civil War reminiscences and regimental histories, over 330 stories have been arranged both chronologically and by subject to form a story of the history of the war.... The voices are those of Abe Lincoln and Robert E. Lee, of slaves, scouts and spies, of the boys in blue and gray and the girls they left behind; of doctors, chaplains, nurses, correspondents, and a host of others. (Inventory #: 2194898)
