In 1860, Ohio was among the most influential states in the nation. As the third-most-populous state and the largest in the middle west, it embraced those elements that were in concert-but also at odds-in American society during the Civil War era. Ohio's War uses documents from that vibrant and tumultuous time to reveal how Ohio's soldiers and civilians experienced the Civil War.
“Christine Dee’s marvelous collection of documents will captivate anyone interested in the history of Ohio and the American Civil War. Ohio’s War: The Civil War in Documents allows us to experience battle with soldiers at places such as Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. As important, we see how the Civil War mobilized, divided, traumatized, and inspired Ohio’s diverse citizens, forcing them to think hard about what was worth living for—and what was worth dying for.”
