The Civil War Told by Those Who Lived It free pdf The definitive firsthand narrative of our nation's greatest conflict, now in a collector's boxed set: Has there ever been another historical crisis of the magnitude of 1861 65 in which so many people were so articulate? wondered Edmund Wilson in his 1962 classic "Patriotic Gore." Reflecting the unprecedented, widespread literacy of nineteenth century Americans, an astonishing number of writers white and black, male and female, soldiers and politicians, public intellectuals and private citizens left vivid first-hand accounts of the Civil War. For the last four years, to mark the sesquicentennial of the most epochal event in American history, The Library of America has published a four-volume series that orchestrates this symphony of voices to chronicle as never before the full drama of the nation s most devastating conflict, from Lincoln s election in 186o to the Grand Review of the Armies in 1865. Now, in advance of the 150th anniversary of the war s climactic final months, all four volumes are presented in a beautiful collector s box. As a special feature, each box includes four pull-out posters featuring full color maps by expert Civil War cartographer Earl McElfresh. Here is the ultimate gift for anyone interested in the Civil War era."
