Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation: The End of Slavery in America, Allen C. Guelzo
8 Allen C. Guelzo Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation: The End of Slavery in America
New York, NY Simon & Schuster 2004 0743262972 / 9780743262972 Trade Paperback Like New 
One of the nation's foremost Lincoln scholars offers an authoritative consideration of the document that represents the most far-reaching accomplishment of our greatest president. No single official paper in American history changed the lives of as many Americans as Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. But no American document has been held up to greater suspicion. Its bland and lawyerlike language is unfavorably compared to the soaring eloquence of the Gettysburg Address and the Second Inaugural; its effectiveness in freeing the slaves has been dismissed as a legal illusion. And for some African-Americans the Proclamation raises doubts about Lincoln himself. Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation dispels the myths and mistakes surrounding the Emancipation Proclamation and skillfully reconstructs how America's greatest president wrote the greatest American proclamation of freedom.

This Distracted and Anarchical People: New Answers for Old Questions about the Civil War-Era North, Andrew L. Slap & Michael Thomas Smith
12 Andrew L. Slap & Michael Thomas Smith This Distracted and Anarchical People: New Answers for Old Questions about the Civil War-Era North
New York Fordham University Press 2013 978082345697 Paperback Used Like New 
While most of the fighting took place in the South, the Civil War profoundly affected the North. As farm boys became soldiers and marched off to battle, social, economic, and political changes transformed northern society. In the generations following the conflict, historians tried to understand and explain the North’s Civil War experience. Many historical explanations became taken for granted, such as that the Union Army was ideologically Republican, northern Democrats were disloyal, and German Americans were lousy soldiers. Now in this eye-opening collection of eleven stimulating essays, new and important information is unearthed that solidly challenges the old historical arguments. The essays in This Distracted and Anarchical People range widely throughout the history of the Civil War North, using new methods and sources to reexamine old theories and discover new aspects of the nation’s greatest conflict. Many of these issues are just as important today as they were a century and a half ago. What were the extent and limits of wartime dissent in the North? How could a president most effectively present himself to the public? Can the savagery of war ever be tamed? How did African Americans create and maintain their families? This Distracted and Anarchical People highlights the newest scholarship on a diverse array of topics, bringing fresh insight to bear on some of the most important topics in history today―such as the democratic press in the antebellum North, peace movements, the Union Army and the elections of 1864, Liberia and the U.S. Civil War, and African American veterans and marriage practices after Emancipation.

Dead March: A Civil War Mystery, Ann McMillan
13 Ann McMillan Dead March: A Civil War Mystery
New York, NY Viking 1998 0670881473 / 9780670881475 Hard Cover As New Very Good 
Historical mysteries fly off the shelves these days. At the same time, millions of Civil War buffs--pilgrims to battle sites and fans of Ken Burns's documentary--devour all they can read about those four fatal years. Dead March, vivid and suspenseful, rich in period detail and the tension of its times, stands poised to capture this twofold audience. In the gilded Virginia spring of 1861, secession talk fills Richmond's parlors and dark doings are afoot in its medical school and cemetery. Narcissa Powers, a well-to-do young white widow, is thrown together with Judah Daniel, a free black herbalist and "conjure woman," to solve the murder of a slave girl whose cadaver is dug up by anatomists and their grave robbers. Aided by a fledgling British news correspondent, these two women from opposite ends of society risk their lives as they infiltrate the worlds of men, medicine, and war that are about to collide in the bloody battle of First Manassas. Dead March is the opening salvo in a series that will delight both mystery and Civil War buffs.

A Shattered Nation: The Rise and Fall of the Confederacy (1861-1868), Anne Sarah Rubin
14 Anne Sarah Rubin A Shattered Nation: The Rise and Fall of the Confederacy (1861-1868)
Chapel Hill, NC University of North Carolina Press 2005 0807829285 / 9780807829288 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
Historians often assert that Confederate nationalism had its origins in pre-Civil War sectional conflict with the North, reached its apex at the start of the war, and then dropped off quickly after the end of hostilities. Anne Sarah Rubin argues instead that white Southerners did not actually begin to formulate a national identity until it became evident that the Confederacy was destined to fight a lengthy war against the Union. She also demonstrates that an attachment to a symbolic or sentimental Confederacy existed independent of the political Confederacy and was therefore able to persist well after the collapse of the Confederate state. White Southerners redefined symbols and figures of the failed state as emotional touchstones and political rallying points in the struggle to retain local (and racial) control, even as former Confederates took the loyalty oath and applied for pardons in droves. Exploring the creation, maintenance, and transformation of Confederate identity during the tumultuous years of the Civil War and Reconstruction, Rubin sheds new light on the ways in which Confederates felt connected to their national creation and provides a provocative example of what happens when a nation disintegrates and leaves its people behind to forge a new identity.

New York, NY iUniverse 2006 0595401856 / 9780595401857 Trade Paperback Very Good Inscribed by Author
We ran headlong across the fields. Minie balls filled the air with that strange, buzzing sound. Every now and again I could feel the air whip my neck as one flew close by. One of the balls ripped a chunk out of my left ear. Dirt flew up all around us where balls struck the ground. Men were dropped everywhere, most dead where they fell. A peaceful hill country farmer from North Carolina, Francis Marion Yelton, is torn from his beloved family and thrust into the barbarity of America’s deadliest conflict: the War Between the States. Forced to become a soldier and fight a war in which he has no stake, Francis struggles to come to grips with his new role. Blood and battle threaten to transform Francis from a man of peace to a brutal warrior, and he struggles to hold on to his ideals. Wracked with doubt and guilt, tormented by the violent acts he has been forced to commit, Francis looks to his faith in God and to the memory of his devoted wife and loving children to sustain him through the dark night of war’s insensate butchery. Battle after battle, through hailstorms of lead and waves of cold steel, Francis fights to survive. Will he ever see home again?

Rebel (The Starbuck Chronicles, Volume One), Bernard Cornwell
19 Bernard Cornwell Rebel (The Starbuck Chronicles, Volume One)
New York, NY Harper Collins Publishers 1992 0060992697 / 9780060992699 Trade Paperback Very Good 
From Publishers Weekly First in a projected series, this brisk novel by the popular author of Sharpe's Devil follows the adventures of Nathaniel Starbuck, the rebellious and discredited son of a famous Boston abolitionist preacher. Nate flees the North after helping a femme fatale steal money she claimed was hers, winding up in Richmond as Fort Sumter falls and the Civil War begins. Unable to return home, distrusted by Southerners because of his parentage, Nate is taken under the wing of the mercurial and megalomaniacal Washington Faulconer, obsessed with building an independent army, answerable only to him, to fight for the Confederacy. Spanning the period from Sumter's capitulation in April 1861 to the First Battle of Bull Run in July, the book is well paced and filled with the historical details genre fans demand. Cornwell is at his best in action sequences like Nate's near tar-and-feathering and the riveting climactic battle, which are described in taut, gripping prose. Cornwell's clear affection for the Old South in all its aspects will put off some readers, but his highly entertaining novel will appeal to many, especially in the South. 50,000 first printing; $70,000 ad/promo; author tour.

A riveting historical narrative of the heart-stopping events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history―how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation, with the former Confederates allowed to reintegrate into American society. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased. In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington D.C., John Wilkes Booth―charismatic ladies' man and impenitent racist―murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre. A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a smart but shifty New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions―including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government, Mary Surratt. Featuring some of history's most remarkable figures, vivid detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.

The Coming Fury: The Centennial History of the Civil War [Volume I], Bruce Catton
42 Bruce Catton The Coming Fury: The Centennial History of the Civil War [Volume I]
Garden City , NY Doubleday & Company,Inc 1961 Cloth Good 
"In words that weave history into art, Bruce Catton has created a book about the coming of the Civil War that is at once a broad canvas and a revealing close-up. Different from anything he has written before, except in the sheer beauty of its narrative style, The Coming Fury is conceived as classic tragedy; as a series of ever-narrowing circles of choice with fewer and fewer men to make them, enclosing, finally, but two men faced with almost no choice at all. Through these pages move the men who guided - and who followed - the nation toward conflict: the extremists, the moderates, and those men, great and small, caught in between. Opening with the Democratic convention - Charleston, April, 1860 - where an almost festive atmosphere prevailed, it closes with a nation torn asunder by the first Battle of Bull Run. How did it all happen, and why? Was the conflict truly 'irrepressible'? These are the questions examined in Bruce Catton's The Coming Fury, a work informed by exhaustive scholarship, comprehensive in outlook, panoramic, yet intensely personal in expression."

New York, NY Promontory Press 1998 0883941015 / 9780883941010 Hard Cover Very Good Fair 
Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Bruce Catton was America’s greatest Civil War historian, and he made the events of that seminal conflict come alive for millions. In this, his final book, edited from many hours of tapes after Catton’s death, he goes right to the heart and soul of what brought this nation to the battlefield. He reflects not only on military history, but also on the actual experience of army life for the common soldier; 17 period drawings by soldier-artist John Geyser, a young private in the Union Army, enhance the insightful words. Catton plunges into the spirit of the time to uncover the motives and emotions that caused the flood of war.

Best Little Ironies, Oddities & Mysteries of the Civil War, C. Brian Kelly
54 C. Brian Kelly Best Little Ironies, Oddities & Mysteries of the Civil War
Nashville, TN Cumberland House 2000 158821166 Trade Paperback Very Good Signed By Both Authors
Best Little Ironies, Oddities, and Mysteries of the Civil War is a collection of more than 100 stories of unusual and frequently surprising events that took place in connection with the Civil War. Organized by topics into seven sections, the stories include ironies that grew out of incidents that took place prior to the war, the unexpected consequences of events and the early days of the conflict, twists and turns of fate among soldiers, civilians and officers, and postwar happenings. All of these stories are written from a journalistic history approach that looks for the "feature story" aspects in the war's events, including: * William "Mudwall" Jackson, who - as a lawyer, judge, and lieutenant governor of Virginia - would have been far better known than his cousin "Stonewall" Jackson had war not broken out. * The man in charge of quelling John Brown's uprising at Harpers Ferry in 1859, surprisingly none other than Robert E. Lee. * Jeff Greenwold of Anoka, Minnesota, who was the first volunteer of the first regiment to organize to fight for the Union. * Brig. Gen. Robert Gannett, who was the first general officer of either side to be killed in battle. * An unnamed Union soldier who broke down in tears following the battle of Williamsburg at the sight of a dead Confederate soldier, then kissed his enemy - his brother. * John Taylor Wood, whose grandfather had been president of the United States, whose father was a 36-year veteran in the Union army, but whose aunt was married to Confederate president Jefferson Davis. * Frank Crawford Armstrong, who served in both the Confederate and Union armies. * Union officer Orton Williams - raised by Robert E. Lee and his wife at Arlington house after Williams had been orphaned - who later informed Mary Lee that Federal troops would be coming to occupy her home the next day.
