Description
This volume in the Seven-Day Scholar series chronicles significant moments in the "great national calamity," as Clara Barton put it, the Civil War. The 52 chapters each contain a week's worth of one-page narrative entries that read like historical fiction, bring to life crucial political decisions, memorable figures, key battlefield moments, scholarly debates, and struggles on the home front. The book also explores many little-known episodes, exploring such questions as: Why did Jefferson and Varina Davis take in a mixed-race child during the war? What were the causes of riots in New York City, Baltimore, and Richmond? And why was General William Sherman demoted for "insanity"?
