Description A gripping and original account of how the Civil War began and a second American revolution unfolded, setting Abraham Lincoln on the path to greatness and millions of slaves on the road to freedom. An epic of courage and heroism beyond the battlefields, introduces us to a heretofore little-known cast of Civil War heroes--among them an acrobatic militia colonel, an explorer's wife, an idealistic band of German immigrants, a regiment of New York City firemen, a community of Virginia slaves, and a young college professor who would one day become president.
The Congressman Louis Wigfall — rowing out to Fort Sumter to try to steal for himself the glory of getting the surrender — is a comic figure. Missouri governor Claiborne Fox Jackson comes across as a duplicitous racist. Floyd is pictured as working against the union even before secession. He spends little time talking about the great Southern generals, and has little good to say about any of the major political figures.
One of the few names that comes away fairly unscathed is that of the diarist Mary Chesnut.
