Guerrillas, Unionists, and Violence on the Confederate Home Front

Edited by Daniel E. Sutherland Much Civil War violence occurred far away from traditional battlefields like Shiloh and Sharpsburg. Indeed, some of the war's most intense violence occurred on the Confederate home front, as family and neighbors were pitted against one another in bloody struggles for control. Mr. Sutherland reminds us that the impact of battles and elections cannot be properly understood without knowledge of what happened on the home front.  These eleven essays, by noted Civil War scholars, each explore the Confederacy's war on the home front in a different state. This was a History Book Club selection. Publication is well indexed, includes 250 pages and available in soft-cover.
