A fresh look at how Northern society mobilized to fight the first great modern war. From Gallman’s analysis of continuity and change, it seems clear that the conflict was not the great watershed in political, economic, and social development that is often supposed. “A concise, readable account….Gallman challenges some conventional wisdom while telling an important and dramatic story.” -James M. McPherson. American Ways Series.
