Description
Believing that the Civil War was as much a cultural conflict as a military one, Adam Goodheart introduces us to a little-known cast of heroes—an acrobatic militia colonel, an explorer's wife, an idealistic band of German immigrants, a community of Virginia slaves, and a young college professor who would one day become president. This history takes us from the corridors of the White House to the slums of Manhattan, from the mouth of the Chesapeake to the deserts of Nevada, vividly evoking the Union at its moment of ultimate crisis.

"1861 is the best book I have ever read on the start of the Civil War. Sumter, secession, and Lincoln appear in a wonderfully fresh and illuminating light…. Penetrating, eloquent, and deeply moving, this is a classic introduction to the nation's greatest conflict."—Tony Horwitz
