Abstract:

"This new collection of previously published material celebrates Nolan's life-long work of research and study of the War. Selected reviews of Civil-War books are included when those reviews contain substantive commentary by Nolan. Included are essays on the Iron Brigade, the battle of Gettysburg, and leaders of the War, with essays on Lincoln, Lee, John Gibbon, and Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain.

Central to all of the essays is Nolan's admiration for the valor of the common soldier and his conviction that the War was neither romantic nor glorious, though its results - emancipation and the maintenance of the Union - were surely positives."--Jacket.
