Indiana’s War · The Civil War in Documents
Edited by Richard F. Nation and Stephen E. Towne

Indiana’s War is a primary source collection featuring the writings of Indiana’s citizens during the Civil War era. Using private letters, official records, newspaper articles, and other original sources, the volume presents the varied experiences of Indiana’s participants in the war both on the battlefield and on the home front.

“Editors Nation and Towne, both superbly qualified, have produced a volume which should be required in any college course in nineteenth-century Indiana history. The book is also a must for readers interested in the Civil War or Indiana history. They will find excellent introductions to each chapter and a fascinating variety of original documents, each with informative annotation. Highly recommended.”
