The 59 selections in this volume, written between 1860 and 1865, include such well-known writers as Frederick Douglass, Lincoln, Melville, and Whitman, as well as the lesser-known, whose experience of war is immediate, unfiltered by memory. It is a picture of America, a literature that crosses all social borders, an integrated portrait of the Civil War as a national experience.
