    A groundbreaking book about the Civil War

    This is a truly remarkable--even game changing--book about the Civil War. It doesn't focus at all on the military aspects of the Civil War; barely a shot was fired in St. Louis. Instead, it zeros in on the social, cultural and ideological aspects of the most important war in our nation's history. The place where the battle for the nation's hearts and minds played out was, surprisingly, St. Louis. In fact, on the eve of the Civil War, it was the fourth largest city in the United States and the border between North and South, and, also pivotally, the gateway to the American West.

    You may know of Missouri as a border state and even now a bell weather state in presidential elections. But if you want to know about the place that was the epicenter of the Civil War conflict--not just between North and South but also to control the American West--- you must read this book. Beautifully written and researched, reading like a novel and just 200 pages long, this book will change the way you view the most important war in American history.
