Inside Connecticut and the Civil War

Essays on One State’s Struggles

This collection of nine original essays provides a rich new understanding of Connecticut's vital role in the Civil War. The book's nine chapters address an array of individual topics that together weave an intricate fabric depicting the state's involvement in this tumultuous period of American history. In-depth examinations of subjects as diverse as the abolitionist movement in Windham County, the shipbuilding industry in Mystic, and post-traumatic stress disorder in Connecticut veterans serve as an excellent companion to Matthew Warshauer's earlier book on the subject, Connecticut in the American Civil War: Slavery, Sacrifice, and Survival. Contributors include David C. W. Batch, Luke G. Boyd, James E. Brown, Michael Conlin, Emily E. Gifford, Todd Jones, Diana Moraco, Carol Patterson-Martineau, and Michael Sturges.

Hardcover is un-jacketed.

Reviews

"The topics are not necessarily what one may immediately think of when thinking about Civil War history. ... These well-researched essays will certainly intrigue historians and should 'spur new historical inquiry and insights.'"—Maine Antiques Digest

"Inside Connecticut and the Civil War expands our understanding of the Civil War home front and the war's lasting impact on the North. No Civil War collection worth its salt should be without this volume."—Paul Alan Cimbala, professor of history, Fordham University

"The Connecticut Civil War Sesquicentennial Commemoration Commission has asked: 'What will historians, 50 years from now, say about what we did to commemorate this moment in time?' These essays provide a strong, positive answer to that question, and will inspire educational programs, events, student research, reflection, fresh interpretations and new paths of discovery."—Sally Whipple, former president, Connecticut League of History Organizations

"The acclaimed volume, Connecticut in the American Civil War, established Matthew Warshauer as the leading authority on Connecticut's Civil War experience. This new work further advances our understanding of that great tragedy."—Glenn S. Gordinier, author of The Rockets' Red Glare: The War of 1812 and Connecticut

"These well-researched and incisive essays cover a wide range of fresh topics to demonstrate the essential role Connecticut played in the Civil War. This is a fine addition to the growing literature on the Civil War–era North."—Andrew L. Slap, author of The Doom of Reconstruction: The Liberal Republicans in the Civil War Era

"In all, this is a rather remarkable little book. In 274 pages, Warshauer and his students have packed a treasury of information that effectively addresses the issues of Connecticut's role in the Civil War and the evolution of the state's collective memory about it. As such, it will serve as a valuable artifact of the Civil War Sesquicentennial in Connecticut for those who shape the bicentennial in 2061."—Stephen P. McGrath, Connecticut History Review

"The topics are not necessarily what one may immediately think of when thinking about Civil War history. These well-researched essays will certainly intrigue historians and should 'spur new historical inquiry and insights.'"—Maine Antiques Digest

"This collection adds many insights to our expanding knowledge of the Civil War as it impacted the North."—Earl Mulderink, Civil War Book Review
