Though civilians constituted the majority of the nation's population and were intimately involved with almost every aspect of the war, we know little about the civilian experience of the Civil War. Southerners lived through the breakup of basic social and economic institutions, including slavery. Northerners witnessed the reorganization of society to fight the war. And citizens of the border regions grappled with elemental questions of loyalty that reached into the family itself. These original essays recover the stories of civilians from Natchez to New England. They address the experiences of men, women, and children of whites, slaves, and free blacks and of civilians from numerous classes. Not least of these stories are the on-the-ground experiences of slaves seeking emancipation and the actions of white Northerners who resisted the draft. Many of the authors present brand new material, such as the war's effect on the sounds of daily life and on reading culture. Others examine the war's premiere events, including the battle of Gettysburg and the Lincoln assassination, from fresh perspectives. Several consider the passionate debate that broke out over how to remember the war, a debate that has persisted into our own time.… (més)

This book was not what I expected. I read this book for a graduate class on the Civil War and everyone seemed surprised by this book. Each chapter was written by a different author, which was fine, but the interests and subjects were all over the map. We expected the book to be about civilians (as the title suggests) but about half of the chapters covered military subjects.

I did enjoy several of the chapters; the last section on the border states was the best in my opinion. It seemed the most cohesive and detailed. Several chapters were biographic in nature, dealing with various personalities of the era. The first chapter on soundscapes raised an interesting topic in regards to how sound or lack of sound can effect people; however I don't think that a lack of bells in the South was a major factor in their losing the war.

In conclusion, if you are interested in some random trivia on the Civil War than this book might interest you. If you are interested in reading biographic chapters on interesting female's of the period than the book could give you a couple of examples. From my course list of 12 books this one ranks towards the bottom; just because of it's apparent lack of cohesion and order. If you are interested in the border states the last section of the book could be useful. ( )
