What they saw
An extraordinary collection of stories from the perspectives of generals, soldiers, poets, future presidents, and ordinary civilians reveals how the Civil War irrevocably changed the lives of all it touched.
Mark Twain recounts the siege of the town that controlled the mighty Mississippi. Carlton McCarthy, the future mayor of Richmond, portrays the mindset of a Confederate soldier. The wife of Confederate General James Longstreet picks up the defense of her much-maligned husband. Ambrose Bierce offers a “boots on the ground” account of one of the war’s most famous battles. And the Chief engineer of the USS Merrimack recalls the great clash of the ironclads.
These stories and many more form an indelible composite of America’s defining conflict.
