The Civil War is one of the most defining eras of American history, and much has been written on every aspect of the war. The volume of material available is daunting, especially when a student is trying to grasp the overall themes of the period. Jonathan Wells has distilled the war down into understandable, easy-to-read chunks, with plenty of maps and illustrations, to help make sense of the battles and social, political, and cultural changes of the era. Presented here is information on: The home front The battles, both in the East and the West The status of slaves Women'¬"s role in the war and its aftermath Literature and public life International aspects of the war And much more! Students will also find helpful study aids on the companion website for the book. A House Dividedprovides a short, readable survey of the Civil War and the Reconstruction period afterward, focusing not only on the battles, but on how Americans lived during a time of great upheaval in the country'¬"s history, and what that legacy has meant to the country today.
