A Companion to the U.S. Civil War

A Companion to the U.S. Civil War presents a comprehensive historiographical collection of essays covering all major military, political, social, cultural and economic aspects of the American civil war (1861–1865).

Featuring contributions from more than 60 top historians and experts in Civil War scholarship, the essays offer in-depth coverage of the major campaigns and battles, and military and political figures. Reflecting a recent shift toward social history, almost half of the chapters focus on non-military aspects of the conflict – examining such topics as gender, emancipation, literature, ethnicity, slavery, and memory. Unprecedented in its breadth of coverage and depth of scholarly analyses, A Companion to the U.S. Civil War is an invaluable addition to the body of Civil War scholarship that continues to shape our understanding of one of the most complex chapters in American history.
