This collection of nine original essays provides a rich new understanding of Connecticut's vital role in the Civil War. The book's nine chapters address an array of individual topics that together weave an intricate fabric depicting the state's involvement in this tumultuous period of American history. In-depth examinations of subjects as diverse as the abolitionist movement in Windham County, the shipbuilding industry in Mystic, and post-traumatic stress disorder in Connecticut veterans serve as an excellent companion to Matthew Warshauer's earlier book on the subject, Connecticut in the American Civil War: Slavery, Sacrifice, and Survival. Contributors include David C. W. Batch, Luke G. Boyd, James E. Brown, Michael Conlin, Emily E. Gifford, Todd Jones, Diana Moraco, Carol Patterson-Martineau, and Michael Sturges.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The topics are not necessarily what one may immediately think of when thinking about Civil War history. These well-researched essays will certainly intrigue historians and should spur new historical inquiry and insights. Maine Antiques Digest"
This collection adds many insights to our expanding knowledge of the Civil War as it impacted the North. Earl Mulderink, Civil War Book Review"
In all, this is a rather remarkable little book. In 274 pages, Warshauer and his students have packed a treasury of information that effectively addresses the issues of Connecticut s role in the Civil War and the evolution of the state s collective memory about it. As such, it will serve as a valuable artifact of the Civil War Sesquicentennial in Connecticut for those who shape the bicentennial in 2061. Stephen P. McGrath, Connecticut History Review"
