Summary
The authors, both teachers and history reenactors in community, screen, and television projects, begin by describing Civil War politics, historians' varying opinions on the causes of the war, America as a Zion for the world, and slavery and abolition. Then, sections on soldiers' lives and activities on the homefront include interesting details such as: what the slaves' and the freed black men and women's lives were like; how soldiers obtained their food; how recipes were changed to accommodate food shortages; the popular books and magazines of the time; and how clothing and fashion were affected by the war.
