BCR's Shelf2Life American Civil War Collection is a unique and
exciting collection of pre-1923 titles focusing on the American
Civil War and the people and events surrounding it. From memoirs
and biographies of notable military figures to firsthand accounts
of famous battles and in-depth discussions of slavery, this
collection is a remarkable opportunity for scholars and historians
to rediscover the experience and impact of the Civil War. The
volumes contained in the collection were all written within 60
years of the end of the war, which means that most authors had
living memory of it and were facing the effects of the war while
writing. These firsthand accounts allow the modern reader to more
fully understand the culture of both the Union and Confederacy, the
politics that governed the escalation and end of the war, the
personal experience of life during the Civil War, and the most
difficult and polarizing question in the history of the United
States: slavery. The American Civil War Collection allows new
readers access to the contemporary arguments and accounts
surrounding the war, and is a vital new tool in understanding this
important and pivotal chapter in American history.
