Mr. Lincoln's War, and some thirty other names has long fascinated historians worldwide.
Was the abolition of slavery really the cause? The repugnant practice of slavery, which was waning in the nineteenth century, was touted as the reason for the national schism. Was it or was it symbolic for states' rights and control by the federal government? Could the war have been averted? Was it funded by rich, powerful interests and industrialist who would profit by the war? The reason, although academic, is still debated.
"Civil War Battle Born" is a fiction novel based loosely on historical facts with two fictional characters, one charged with fanning the flames of war for the north and the other charged with finding funding for the South to maintain the war effort. Nevada, then the territory of Nevada,
was rich in Silver and Gold. Both the North and South sought over obtaining the rights to this treasure.
Nevada was refused statehood prior to the Civil War, then in 1864 was offered statehood by the North under terms outlined under the "Enabling
Act" which was rushed through congress to ensure an electoral win for Lincoln. Civil War Battle Born uses this historical accuracy to review what happened. Somewhat historically scratchy and subject to conjecture Civil War Battle Born adds some "how's and whys".
