Om People's History of the Civil War

Bottom-up history at its very best, A Peoples History of the Civil War "does for the Civil War period what Howard Zinns A Peoples History of the United States did for the study of American history in general" (Library Journal). Widely praised upon its initial release, it was described as "meticulously researched and persuasively argued" by the Atlanta Journal- Constitution.Historian David Williams has written the first account of the American Civil War though the eyes of ordinary peoplefoot soldiers, slaves, women, prisoners of war, draft resisters, Native Americans, and others. Richly illustrated with little- known anecdotes and first-hand testimony, this pathbreaking narrative moves beyond presidents and generals to tell a new and powerful story about Americas most destructive conflict.A Peoples History of the Civil War is "readable social history" that "sheds fascinating light" (Publishers Weekly) on this crucial period. In so doing it recovers the long-overlooked perspectives and forgotten voices of one of the defining chapters of American history.
