Civil War Stories: A 150th Anniversary Collection
Stories from - and about - a nation divided.
Published in partnership with
Diversion Books

At The Washington Post, the Civil War has held an enduring fascination for both readers and writers. Raging from 1861-1865, the Battle Between the States has left a lasting imprint on the United States' collective psyche for 150 years. Civil War Stories: A 150th Anniversary Collection aggregates historical data with contemporary reflections, as journalists and historians put the bloody war into context:

- A timeline of Lincoln's candidacy - and what may have happened if he had lost the election
- An ode to West Virginia, which abandoned Virginia rather than secede from the Union
- The obstacles faced by emancipated slaves
- Women in the federal workforce - and disguised as men on the battlefields
- The modern anti-slavery crusade of Frederick Douglass' great-great-great-grandson

Personal stories of tragedy and triumph still resonate today. From biographical histories to examinations of the war's legacies, Civil War Stories: A 150th Anniversary Collection is a unique compilation of stories of when our nation was divided..

Thanks for posting this. I have only recently turned to the E-book because of the lower prices that one can find by using this modern form of technology. However, there is still nothing like turning the pages of a good book (with a dust cover in great shape)!

I sure agree, Craig. I absolutely love the smell of an antiquarian bookstore. When my wife and I first moved to our current location there were several antiquarian bookstores within driving distance of our home. Many are now gone. I really miss that special smell.
Thank you, Roger....

I definitely agree! I collect 18th and 19th Century leather bound books and I, too love the smell AND the feel of old leather bound volumes! There is just something about holding one of those old, old books in your hands -
