By late 1862 the survival of the United States was in doubt: the Union had suffered major defeats and the Britain was openly talking of recognizing the Confederate States of America and brokering a peace between North and South. On September 17, 1862 at Antietam, both sides knew they faced a decisive conflict.

The hideous, decisive battle was the bloodiest single day in American history, with more than 6,000 killed. In his enormously praised new book, the greatest historian of the Civil War paints a masterful account of this pivotal battle, the events that led up to it and its aftermath. There is no better short account of just why the American Civil War mattered so much and how one day changed the world.

Review:

This concise, elegantly written book by the commanding general of the army of American Civil War historians brilliantly captures the larger meaning of the war through the prism of one bloody and pivotal battle (The Times Literary Supplement)

[McPherson] does a superb job of re-creating a moment when the war, and all of American history that followed, might have gone altogether differently

McPherson is the preeminent historian of the Civil War (Washington Post)

About the Author:

James M. McPherson is the George Henry Davis '86 Professor of History at Princeton University. His most famous book is Pulitzer Prize-winning Battle Cry of Freedom, published by Penguin.
