Debby ApplegateMany good studies about the [Civil War] will be published, but few will be as exhilarating as 1861: The Civil War Awakening. Like many of the best works of history, 1861 creates the uncanny illusion that the reader has stepped into a time machine…Goodheart's version is at once more panoramic and more intimate than most standard accounts, and more inspiring. This is fundamentally a history of hearts and minds, rather than of legislative bills and battles.
—The New York Times
