schema:description""Behind Bayonets focuses on Ohio's substantial role in the Civil War. It is perhaps the only work that uses published and unpublished sources written by northeast Ohioans to comment on the causes, course, and purpose of the war. It does not provide an overview of battles, but it does address soldiers' enlistments and early camp experiences, women's experiences, public reactions to emancipation and the general political interest in the war, local business growth during the war, and Lincoln's assassination and the funeral train's stop in Cleveland.""@en
schema:description""The authors use moving first-person commentaries and accounts to illustrate and explain these issues and situations. Additionally, the text is illustrated with rare photographs from the Western Reserve Historical Society's archives."--BOOK JACKET."@en
