The view from the ground : experiences of Civil War soldiers( )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 2,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Civil War scholars have long used soldiers' diaries and correspondence to flesh out their studies of the conflict's great officers, regiments, and battles. However, historians have only recently begun to treat the common Civil War soldier's daily life as a worthwhile topic of discussion in its own right. The View from the Ground reveals the beliefs of ordinary men and women on topics ranging from slavery and racism to faith and identity and represents a significant development in historical scholarship - the use of Civil War soldiers' personal accounts to address larger questions about America's past." "The View from the Ground goes beyond standard histories that discuss soldiers primarily in terms of campaigns and casualties. These essays show that soldiers on both sides were authentic historical actors who willfully steered the course of the Civil War and shaped subsequent public memory of the event."--BOOK JACKET
The Civil War( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stanton as Secretary of War, the selections provide a sense of the immediacy, uncertainty, and urgency of events as the nation was torn asunder. Includes headnotes, a chronology of events, and biographical and explanatory endnotes.--Adapted from publisher description
Why confederates fought : family and nation in Civil War Virginia by Aaron Charles Sheehan-Dean( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first comprehensive study of the experience of Virginia soldiers and their families in the Civil War, Aaron Sheehan-Dean captures the inner world of the rank-and-file. He challenges earlier arguments that middle- and lower-class southerners gradually withdrew their support for the Confederacy because their class interests were not being met. Instead he argues that Virginia soldiers continued to be motivated by the profound emotional connection between military service and the protection of home and family, even as the war dragged on
