During the American Civil War thousands of families were forced to endure the violence and hardship of a brutal four-year conflict. Ural's narrative of the war makes extensive use of personal accounts by men and women, both famous and forgotten, whose letters, diaries and memoirs illustrate the perseverance of those facing crisis and privation on the battlefield and the home front; they range from the Lincolns in Washington, mourning their young son, to slave families seeking emancipation.
