Summary, etc.:
This volume offers a social historian's view of the Civil War, shifting the focus away from political and military leaders to look at how the war affected, and was affected by, ordinary citizens of all kinds.Civil War: People and Perspectives looks at one of the most convulsive events in American history through the eyes of ordinary citizens, examining issues related to the home front and war front across the full spectrum of racial, class, and gender boundaries. Moving away from the traditional focus on famous political and military figures, this insightful volume recounts the experiences of soldiers, women and children, slaves and freed persons, Native Americans, immigrants, and other social groups during a time of extraordinary national upheaval. It is a revealing look at how the lives of everyday people―Northern and Southern, black and white, rich and poor, male and female, enslaved and free―shaped and were shaped by the American Civil War.Primary source documents provide firsthand accounts of what life was like away from the spotlight of history during the Civil WarEach essay contains two biographical sidebars that personalize the experiences discussed in the chapter
