In this remarkable collection, ten premier scholars of nineteenth-century America address the epochal impact of the Civil War by examining the conflict in terms of three Americas-antebellum, wartime, and postbellum nations. Moreover, they recognize the critical role in this transformative era of three groups of Americans-white northerners, white southerners, and African Americans in the North and South. Through these differing and sometimes competing perspectives, the contributors address crucial ongoing controversies at the epicenter of the cultural, political, and intellectual history of this decisive period in American history.

William J. Cooper, Jr. is Boyd Professor of History at Louisiana State University. In addition to numerous articles, essays, & reviews, he is the author of "The Conservative Regime: South Carolina, 1877-1890," "The South & the Politics of Slavery, 1825-1856," & "Liberty & Slavery: Southern Politics to 1860," as well as co-author of "The American South: A History." He lives in Baton Rouge.
