Abstract:

If the South Had Won the Civil War originally appeared in the November 22, 1960, issue of Look magazine where it inspired a deluge of correspondence from readers. Published in book form in 1961, the novel is a must-have for Civil War enthusiasts. Out of print for over a decade, MacKinlay Kantor's classic Civil War novel is back, featuring a brand new introduction by Harry Turtledove (author of the bestselling The Guns of the South), new interior art by Dan Nance, and a stunning cover by acclaimed Civil War artist Don Troiani. This new edition also includes a hard-to-find essay by Kantor describing how and why the novel was written, and the nation's reaction to its publication. MacKinlay Kantor was superbly equipped to write this fascinating account of what might have happened, beginning on the fateful afternoon of Tuesday, May 12, 1863, when a deplorable equestrian accident resulted in the death of General Ulysses S. Grant.
