After becoming well-known for his biography on Napoleon Bonaparte, John Abbott collected information, letters, and interviews for his “History of the Civil War in America” – an account that is unintentionally ‘strongly pro-Union’ (Nevins). This work would eventually see volumes covering the entire war, however, these first two volumes, published by Bill, contain the events leading up to and the start of the Civil War.

 

Abbott discusses causes of the Civil War, the French Revolution, similarities between ancient Roman and American slavery, how to free slaves, characteristics of the Christian Church in the American South, speeches by Douglas, Davis, and Lincoln, military tactics and battle plans, Battle of Bull Run, Wilson’s Creek in Missouri, descriptions and involvement of naval ships, and much more.

 

Filled with 49 incredible illustrations of maps, portraits, and scenes.
