Overview

See the Civil War through the eyes of the people who lived through it: spies, soldiers, generals, escaping slaves, nurses, and more.

When one thinks of the American Civil War, it is easy to conjure up images of great generals developing brilliant strategies and influential politicians making historic decisions; but there was a great deal more going on...

In this book, you will find Civil War stories most people have never heard before, told by people who actually lived during those momentous times. From intrepid young men who went aloft in balloons and viewed the enemy's position, to the joys and miseries of the private soldier, to the daring activities of secret spies...

Laugh as Sir Henry Morton Stanley recounts his adventure, as a young private, raiding the farm of a Unionist to "forage" for he and his messmates' Christmas dinner. Or, be amazed as Sarah Edmonds tells how she disguised herself and made her way deep within Confederate lines. These accounts and many more make up this unique collection of amazing Civil War stories...

From camp pranks to close, bloody conflict; and from the jubilation of victory to the misery of defeat, you can find it all in War Stories: The American Civil War, Remembered by Those Who Were There
