Spanning the crucial months from January 1863 to March 1864, this third volume of the unprecedented four-year, four-volume series chronicling our nation’s most devastating conflict illuminates the military and political events that bring the Union closer to victory and slavery closer to destruction. The selections include vivid eyewitness narratives of some of the war’s most famous battles—Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Fort Wagner, Chickamauga, Chattanooga—as well as firsthand accounts of the merciless guerrilla war in Missouri and Kansas; the New York draft riots; the controversies surrounding the Lincoln administration’s curtailment of civil liberties; and the struggles of civilians both black and white to survive increasingly harsh wartime conditions.
