MEDIA REVIEWS
"The focus on the direct experiences of ordinary Americans and the amount of context provided set this book apart from the plethora of works on the Civil War. A great choice for American history collections." - Library Journal
"One of the greatest means for achieving an understanding of a historical period long past is to read the unfiltered, unanalyzed words of people who lived through it, and among the 48 documents provided here is an array of letters and journal entries written by people who existed at and around the time of the Civil War. . . . The documents are followed by questions, most of which are substantial, to encourage expanded deliberation; they will make excellent fodder for classroom discussion. . . . a rich volume of fascinating primary documents and worthwhile ancillary material" - School Library Journal
