"No historians have done more to broaden our understanding of the Civil War than Catherine Clinton and Nina Silber. In this new volume, they stretch the boundaries yet again, introducing us to new voices, new subjects, and new ways of looking at old topics. Everyone interested in this central drama of American history should be grateful."-Edward L. Ayers, University of Virginia
"Civil War historians are already in debt to Catherine Clinton and Nina Silber for their groundbreaking collection Divided Houses
. This is most assuredly another 'must read' for anyone seeking fresh and fascinating insight into the Civil War and its lasting aftermath."--Lesley J. Gordon, co-editor of Intimate Strategies of the Civil War: Military Commanders and their Wives
