This book combines a sweeping narrative history of the Civil War with a bold new look at the war's significance for American society. Professor Hummel sees the Civil War as America's turning point: simultaneously the culmination and repudiation of the American revolution. The second edition includes a new Introduction by the author, discussing the book's reception and new findings since it first appeared, and a foreword by the distinguished Civil War historian John Majewski.
