"This work on the daily lives of ordinary soldiers and civilians caught up on both sides of the Civil War features about 50 B&W historical photos, posters, and illustrations, many from the authors' own collection. It offers details on food, drink, shelter, recreation, religion, mourning, and the horrors of battle, and spotlights the roles of women, slaves, free persons, and children in the conflict. This second edition draws on additional primary sources; it contains new chapters on the effects of the war on families, and the activities of Southern pacifist groups and anti-Confederate border residents. A chronology and a glossary are included. Dorothy Volo is program coordinator and president of a local historical society." - Reference & Research Book News
