While the Civil War represented a triumph for America's original ideals and its battles offer military historians countless studies, the conflict also left millions of veterans and civilians with lasting wounds both physical and psychological. Surveying this comparatively unknown toll of the War Between the States, this anthology features selections from Louisa May Alcott, Ambrose Bierce, Walt Whitman, Mary Chestnut, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, alongside letters, articles, and poems by battlefield medics, soldiers, and journalists. Also included in this diverse collection are vintage and contemporary accounts of evacuations, field hospitals, war photography, African American regiments, amputation, and even the Salem Leg—an experimental prosthetic limb.
