Mutiny in the Civil War

Overview

Overview

Far from being merely a struggle for home and hearth, preservation of the Union, eventual emancipation of slaves, and other noble ideas, the Civil War was nitty-gritty throughout. Mutiny in the Civil War is the first ever volume on the subject, and deals with almost two hundred incidents. This study of resistance to authority illuminates the extent to which thousands of ordinary fighting men and many officers were opposed to policies and orders. Even more than the obvious matter of desertion, mutinies reveal how unpopular the war effort, as waged, had become with the men on the firing line.

Aimed at general readers, Mutiny in the Civil War will also add material that will be new to specialists. These incidents range from one man to several regiments. Men of different ranks, nationalities, and races are all included in this one-of-a-kind study.
