Voices from the Gathering Storm explains the dramatic change in thinking about the nature and value of the American Union from 1846 to 1861 which impelled citizens from 11 southern states to declare independence and the remaining 22 states to fight the bloodiest war in the nation's history. This reader tells the story of seventeen Northerners and Southerners who lived through the critical fifteen years prior to the Civil War. In their letters and diaries, they describe in their own words what it was like to live during the sectional crisis and the coming of the war.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A well-regarded scholar of nineteenth-century history, Glenn Linden has produced a volume of contemporary sources focused on several key individuals that will be very useful for classes on the Civil War and Reconstruction. -- Eric Foner, Columbia University
By drawing on many voices, this new book illustrates the enormity of the Civil War for American society. By staying with the chosen subjects over a period of crisis and change, Voices from the Gathering Storm shows what it was like to live through such a tumultuous time. -- Edward Countryman, Southern Methodist University
Linden has shown great care in searching out relevant letters, speeches, diary entries and the like to illustrate the issues that polarized the country and led to secession and war. -- James M. McPherson, author of Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era
