Hailed as prophet of modern war and condemned as a harbinger of modern barbarism, William Tecumseh Sherman is the most controversial general of the American Civil War.

“War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it,” he wrote in fury to the Confederate mayor of Atlanta, and his memoir is filled with dozens of such wartime exchanges. With the propulsive energy and intelligence that marked his campaigns,

This complex self-portrait of an innovative and relentless American warrior provides firsthand accounts of the war’s crucial events—Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, the Atlanta campaign, the marches through Georgia and the Carolinas.

The history of the American rebellion against England, written by one of America's preeminent eighteenth-century historians, differs from many views of the Revolution. It is not colored by excessive worship of the Founding Fathers but, instead, permeated by sympathy for all those involved in the conflict.

Clearly the best one-volume history of the Revolution written so far. -- Jack P. Greene, Professor of History, John Hopkins University

...<b>Literature and Humanitarian Reform in the Civil War Era.</b>, Eiselein, Gregory

Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A. Indiana Univ Press, 1996. 0253330424 / 9780253330420 First Edition; First Printing; Full Number Line. Hardcover.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality,
During the Civil War, a crisis erupted in philanthropy that dramatically changed humanitarian theories and practices, and demanded new approaches to humanitarian work.
This book tracks these upheavals and innovations within organized benevolence from 1859 to 1868, investigating the unorthodox humanitarian projects that flourished in this era. Certain writer-activists began to advocate an "eccentric benevolence" - a type of philanthropy that would undo the hierarchical distinction between powerful agents who bestow humanitarian assistance and weaker folks who receive it.
Among the figures Gregory Eiselein discusses are the anti-philanthropic Henry David Thoreau; the dangerously philanthropic John Brown; African American writers Harriet Wilson and Harriet Jacobs; and Walt Whitman and Louisa May Alcott, whose nursing experiences with the wounded led them to believe that hospital care should be centered around patients' attitudes, feelings, and needs.
