Part of the National Park Civil War Series
. The Civil War was a rude awakening for most Americans who had not realized that Lincoln's election in 1860 and secession fever would culminate in armed struggle for Confederate independence. Hardly anyone imagined that the conflict would become all encompassing, touching the lives of nearly all Americans - slave and free, black and white, native-born and immigrant, man and woman, adult and child. Lives would be dramatically transformed by this momentous battle to decide the future of the continent. Softcover; 52 pages.
