Connecticut in the American Civil War offers readers a remarkable window into the state's involvement in a conflict that challenged and defined the unity of a nation. The arc of the war is traced through the many facets and stories of battlefield, home front, and factory. Matthew Warshauer masterfully reveals the varied attitudes toward slavery and race before, during, and after the war; Connecticut's reaction to the firing on Fort Sumter; the dissent in the state over whether or not the sword and musket should be raised against the South; the raising of troops; the sacrifice of those who served on the front and at home; and the need for closure after the war. This book is a concise, amazing account of a complex and troubling war. No one interested in this period of American history can afford to miss reading this important contribution to our national and local stories. The paperback edition includes a reading guide, which is also available at http://www.wesleyan.edu/wespress/e-books/materials/warshauer_reading_guide.pdf

Review:

" Connecticut in the American Civil War: Slavery, Sacrifice, and Survival serves as a model of what a state-level survey of the Civil War can achieve. More than a synthesis, his book attains a potent combination of description and analysis."--Peter C. Luebke, The Civil War Monitor

"A concise, well written overview of the major battles fought both on the ground and in the political arena during the Civil war. ...(O)ffers fresh insight in the political motivations for both Connecticut lawmakers and nationally elected officials regarding slavery, emancipation--Christina Beaird, AASL/PLR "Outstanding" University Press Books

From the Publisher:

MATTHEW WARSHAUER is a professor of history at Central Connecticut State University. He serves as the co-chair of the Connecticut Civil War Commemoration Committee, which develops programs and events commemorating the war’s sesquicentennial.
