Summary
This book attempts to tell the story through the eyes of the original disputants, as they saw it at the time. It is not just about the Sumter crisis itself but about what it signified to that generation. It seeks to show what America was in 1860 and what it was becoming, and why certain forces drove her people into deadly and unavoidable conflict
