Reader's Guide

Understanding Primary Sources: American Civil War presents full or excerpted documents written by people who participated in the events of the Civil War. Included among its three volumes (Key Events; Recollections of Combat; Freedom, Slavery, and Abolition) are documents ranging from notable speeches that mark important points in the conflict to personal diaries and letters that reflect the hopes, dreams, fears, and experiences of ordinary soldiers and civilians of the era. Some of the selections discuss highly personal issues, such as the terror of being in combat. Others chronicle events that fundamentally altered the course of the Civil War, like President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and the letters between Union general William T. Sherman and Atlanta, Georgia, city leaders, relating to the 1864 fall of Atlanta. Further, the works included in this set present a wide range of perspectives on the conflict. Some entries provide insights into the feelings of men and women who were devoted to the Confederacy, for example, while others provide a glimpse into the motivations of equally dedicated Union loyalists.

Each excerpt presented in Understanding Primary Sources: American Civil War includes the following additional material:

An introduction places the document and its author in a historical context.

Things to remember while reading … offers readers important background information and directs them to central ideas in the text.

What happened next … provides an account of subsequent events, both in the war and in the life of the author.

Did you know … provides significant and interesting facts about the document, the author, or the events discussed.

For further reading … lists sources for more information on the author, the topic, or the document.

Other features of Understanding Primary Sources: American Civil War include photographs and illustrations depicting the personalities and events discussed in the documents, and sidebars presenting additional information on unusual or significant aspects of the issue or event under discussion. In addition, the set provides an American Civil War Timeline that lists significant dates and events of the Civil War era.
