Antiwar protest has long been an under-reported component of the Civil War story. "Heaven Will Frown on Such a Cause as This" traces the life stories of six men in northern states who denounced the war against the Confederacy. These men were called "copperheads" by their opponents, but they labeled themselves "Peace Democrats."

MEDIA REVIEWS
...Cowden has contributed a valuable work to the historiography of northern Civil War dissent. * Journal of American History *
One of the many strengths of this book is that Cowden recovers the ideological and political complexities of her subjects. -- Mark Voss-Hubbard, Eastern Illinois University * Connecticut History *
Readers of 'Heaven Will Frown on Such a Cause as This' will find a fresh and perceptive approach to the tragedy of the Civil War. Cowden does not treat the Confederates, the external foe, but instead the hierarchies within the Union itself. What we learn from her penetrating examination is the poignancy about lives lost long ago. We perceive their backward-looking rationale for leaving things as they were. -- Bertram Wyatt-Brown, author of The Shaping of Southern Culture
