The North’s Civil War

Edited by Andrew L. Slap, East Tennessee State University

The North’s Civil War series explores Northern society and its role in a broadly defined Civil War era, stretching from the antebellum development of the North to the aftereffects of the conflict in the postbellum period. With regard to the Civil War itself, the series focuses on both the Northern home front and the Union military, following Northern soldiers and sailors to battlefields and occupation duty throughout the South. The series encompasses innovative scholarship in a variety of fields, including military, biographical, social, political, intellectual, environmental, diplomatic, religious, and cultural history. Focusing on the North and its people during the Civil War era adds a vital perspective to understanding one of the most important eras in American history.
