Connecticut may have been far from the Civil War battle frontlines, but the Nutmeg State still played a significant part in that bloody conflagration. Matthew Warshauer's Connecticut in The American Civil War shows how people in the state responded quickly to the shot fired on Fort Sumter. Some debated the proper response to secession, but residents voted with their feet, eventually filling thirty full regiments of infantry for the Union cause. This micro-history reveals facets of the conflict missed in "big picture" narratives of the war.
