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.
