From the birth of the Republican Party to the Confederacy's first convention, the Underground Railroad to the Emancipation Proclamation, the Battle of Gettysburg to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, this latest title in the Legends & Lies series reveals amazing and often little known stories behind the battle lines of America's bloodiest war and debunks the myths that surround its greatest figures, including Harriet Tubman, Abraham Lincoln, General Robert E. Lee, Frederick Douglass, Stonewall Jackson, John Singleton Mosby, Ulysses S. Grant, Jefferson Davis, John Wilkes Booth, and William Tecumseh Sherman. An epic struggle between the past and future, the Civil War sought to fulfill the promise that "all men are created equal."

" The Confederacy was stunned by Stonewall Jackson's death. That he had been killed by his own guns made accepting it even more difficult. ' You will have heard of the death of General Jackson,' Robert E. Lee lamented. ' It is a terrible loss. I do not know how to replace him.'..on that fact, the war turned."
