This overview covers the secession and the war from the year 1861 to 1865. Reid Mitchell's focus is the interaction of the military progress of the war, Union and Confederate politics, and social change, particularly emancipation. The social history associated with the war is dealt with alongside the familiar military and political events. This inclusive approach allows the reader to consider equally the history of men and women, blacks and whites in the conflict. It deals with both the Union and the Confederacy, integrating the latest literature on the war and society into a clear account. The book concludes with an assessment of emancipation, the rebuilding of the economy, and the war's consequences. This study integrates literature on Civil War era society and politics at one of the most volatile times in American history.
