Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The topics are not necessarily what one may immediately think of when thinking about Civil War history. … These well-researched essays will certainly intrigue historians and should ‘spur new historical inquiry and insights.’”
—Maine Antiques Digest

“This collection adds many insights to our expanding knowledge of the Civil War as it impacted the North.”
—Earl Mulderink, Civil War Book Review

“In all, this is a rather remarkable little book. In 274 pages, Warshauer and his students have packed a treasury of information that effectively addresses the issues of Connecticut’s role in the Civil War and the evolution of the state’s collective memory about it. As such, it will serve as a valuable artifact of the Civil War Sesquicentennial in Connecticut for those who shape the bicentennial in 2061.”
—Stephen P. McGrath, Connecticut History Review

What People are saying about this

Andrew L. Slap
“These well-researched and incisive essays cover a wide range of fresh topics to demonstrate the essential role Connecticut played in the Civil War. This is a fine addition to the growing literature on the Civil War–era North.”
Paul Alan Cimbala
“Inside Connecticut and the Civil War expands our understanding of the Civil War home front and the war’s lasting impact on the North. No Civil War collection worth its salt should be without this volume.”
Glenn S. Gordinier
“The acclaimed volume, Connecticut in the American Civil War, established Matthew Warshauer as the leading authority on Connecticut’s Civil War experience. This new work further advances our understanding of that great tragedy.”
Sally Whipple
“The Connecticut Civil War Sesquicentennial Commemoration Commission has asked: ‘What will historians, 50 years from now, say about what we did to commemorate this moment in time?’ These essays provide a strong, positive answer to that question, and will inspire educational programs, events, student research, reflection, fresh interpretations and new paths of discovery.”
