    Recruited primarily from the gentle farmlands of central New York, the men of the Twenty-Sixth New York Volunteer Infantry were among the first to answer their nation's call during the Civil War.

  • Captives in Grayby Roger Pickenpaugh

    University of Alabama Press 2015; US$ 49.95

    Perhaps no topic is more heated, and the sources more tendentious, than that of Civil War prisons and the treatment of prisoners of war (POWs). Partisans of each side, then and now, have vilified the other for maltreatment of their POWs, while seeking to excuse their own distressing record of prisoner of war camp mismanagement, brutality, and incompetence.... more...

    According to the 1860 census, nearly 350,000 native northerners resided in a southern state by the time of the Civil War.

In this innovative study, David Ross Zimring examines what motivated these Americans to change... more...

    The University Press of Kentucky 2006; US$ 40.00

    With an Afterword by Joseph T.

  • The Declining World Orderby Richard Falk

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 53.95

  • War of Another Kindby Wayne K. Durrill

    Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 39.95

  • Break Those Chains at Lastby Noralee Frankel

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 34.99

    "We thought we'd break those chains at last," sang the slaves, hoping such spirituals would sustain them until the Confederacy surrendered and slavery was gone forever. During the Civil War, blacks served in the Union army and navy (although some fought for the South) and in Union-controlled camps, which harbored fleeing slaves. Not all slaves escaped,... more...
