Overview

The American Civil War has intrigued millions of readers for 150 years. But how much do we know about the real lives of Americans on the battlefields and in trenches and winter quarters when the soldiers had a respite from combat? Civil War Trivia looks inside the conflict to examine the many fascinating and heartrending stories about this great war:
• The casualties of the Civil War, including both North and South, totaled more than two percent of the entire population of United States at the time
• Abraham Lincoln's famous debates with Stephen A. Douglas dragged Lincoln more strongly into the abolitionist movement and made him a national figure even though he lost the senate race
• Government records estimate that some 300 women disguised as males fought alongside men during the Civil War; some retained their male identities after the war ended
• Civil War surgeons became so skilled at amputation that they could remove a limb and stitch up the wound in a mere 15 minutes
• And many more stories from behind the front lines of the Civil War...
