In A Treasury of Civil War Tales, you'll discover things like: What Union general was showered with 10,000 gift cigars following the unconditional surrender of Fort Donelson, Tennessee, how a Boston banking heiress wrote the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" following a tour of war-torn Washington, and what former Ohio congressman was deported from the United States to the Confederacy for advocating peace and reconciliation with the South.
Garrison presents the Civil War with a human face in a collection of stories that capture what the war was like for the people who lived through it. There are fifty-two chronologically arranged stories about Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, Dred Scott's legal battle with slavery, and much more.
Read this timeless documentary. It'll open your eyes to the mysteries beneath the Civil War.
