Virginia's Civil War ( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The twenty essays collected here explore the Virginia story throughout the Civil War era. Some contributors examine Robert E. Lee and the issues confronting his men, such as soldier morale and religious conversion. Others emphasize the wartime home front - in some cases reexamining its connection with the battlefront - or explore questions of gender, race, or religion. Several essays extend the story into the postwar years and consider various Virginia individuals or groups in the context of the conflict's aftermath. Building on current knowledge, but often contesting conventional thinking, the essays give the most comprehensive view yet of Civil War Virginia, and suggest avenues of inquiry that remain to be explored."--BOOK JACKET
