    A small volume that speaks volumes

    This is a book I was required to read for an American History college course, but I'm glad it was mandatory, as I really enjoyed reading it, and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in American history. McPherson is an accessible writer, very clear and succinct, whose style is anything but dry and "textbook-like." For the definitive overview of the Civil War one might read his "Battle Cry of Freedom," but this small volume is worthy reading, presenting the intriguing idea that the Civil War was really "the second American revolution." It was enlightening and absorbing, and as a small aside, it actually brought me together with my new beau, because when he discovered I was reading a book by his favorite author, we compared notes, and the rest was. . .see what reading can lead to? ! Thanks, Mr. McPherson.

    Excellent book!!

    This book takes a different look at Abraham Lincoln. It shows how the Civil War completely changed American society; not just by ending slavery, but by ending a balance of power that had existed between the North and South, agriculture & industry. The South did not fully participate in running the country for years after the war, and the North enacted laws that were favorable to industry. This country would be totally different if the Civil War had not happened.

    I wish I had read this book years ago.
