Over a decade ago, the publication of Divided Houses ushered in a new field of scholarship on gender and the Civil War. Following in its wake, Battle Scars showcases insights from award-winning historians as well as emerging scholars. This volume depicts the ways in which gender, race, nationalism, religion, literary culture, sexual mores, and even epidemiology underwent radical transformations from when Americans went to war in 1861 through Reconstruction. Examining the interplay among such phenomena as racial stereotypes, sexual violence, trauma, and notions of masculinity, Battle Scars represents the best new scholarship on men and women in the North and South and highlights how lives were transformed by this era of tumultuous change.
"Civil War historians are already in debt to Catherine Clinton and Nina Silber for their groundbreaking collection Divided Houses. This is most assuredly another 'must read' for anyone seeking fresh and fascinating insight into the Civil War and its lasting aftermath."--Lesley J. Gordon, co-editor of Intimate Strategies of the Civil War: Military Commanders and their Wives
"No historians have done more to broaden our understanding of the Civil War than Catherine Clinton and Nina Silber. In this new volume, they stretch the boundaries yet again, introducing us to new voices, new subjects, and new ways of looking at old topics. Everyone interested in this central drama of American history should be grateful."-Edward L. Ayers, University of Virginia
"Drawing on a number of primary sources ranging from government records to personal letters and diaries, the essayists offer a variety of well-written and equally intriguing studies that warrant the attention of scholars, students, and Civil War enthusiasts. Their work reveals just how far the field of gender and the Civil War has come while suggesting to readers new areas of exploration."--Victoria E. Ott, Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
