Format: Paperback
Half a century after it was written, Bertram W. Korn's AMERICAN JEWRY AND THE CIVIL WAR remains the definitive work on the topic of Jewish-American participation in the American Civil War. Unlike other Judaic historians, Dr. Korn displays no partisan bias, neither "Union" nor "Confederate", neither "Orthodox" nor "Pluralistic." His research is impeccable, and his scholarship is objective and pleasing to all.
OUTSTANDING!

24 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on January 12, 2002
Format: Hardcover
First published in 1951, American Jewry And The Civil War by Rabbi Bertram Korn is a striking, comprehensive look at how the 150,000 American Jews were involved on both sides of America's deadliest conflict. Chapters include meticulous discussions on such matters as Rabbinical positions on the issue of slavery; Lincoln and the Jews; and anti-Semitism in both the North and the South. A wealth of references permeate exhaustive study, including transcripts of original correspondence that noteworthy Jewish leaders had with President Lincoln. American Jewry And The Civil War is a welcome and impressive contribution to Civil War studies and nineteenth century American Jewish history.

Excellent book. I learned a great deal, and while much of it- the endemic antisemitism in the USA, esp. Grant's- was deeply depressing, I was glad I learned it.
