Book - 1994

The subject of this intriguing lecture is carved out of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author's larger work-in-progress, Why They Fought, which will focus on the attitudes and motives of Civil War soldiers. The narrower scope of this small book is ideology, that is, what the soldiers believed they were fighting for. A close study of thousands of personal letters and diaries written by soldiers during the war reveals a more sophisticated level of understanding than has conventionally been assumed.
