内容简介
A revealing historical and photographic tour of the homes of influential Civil War figures, including Robert E. Lee, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Clara Barton, Stonewall Jackson, and others.Timed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and a fitting sequel to "Houses of the Presidents," HOUSES OF CIVIL WAR AMERICA takes readers into the daily lives of the most important historical figures in the nation-defining conflict. From modest abolitionist homes to the plantations of the antebellum south. Howard and Straus bring the most intimate moments of the war to life. With insightful narrative and gorgeous photography, HOUSES OF CIVIL WAR AMERICA demonstrates--through these landmark homes--the nation we were and the nation we became.

"The Civil War proved Lincoln's warning that a 'house divided against itself cannot stand.' However, many of the actual houses of that roiling period withstood not only the war, but the test of time since-and it is a revelation to see them as they look today, and learn about the families who then and since have dwelled in and preserved them. This book literally opens a window into nineteenth-century domestic and cultural history, and brings us a giant step closer to the life and times of the families who survived and endured." "Harold Holzer, author of "Lincoln and the Power of the Press" and Chariman of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Foundation""
