"The meaning of the war has been debated for the past 150 years, and it is destined to be debated for the next 150 years as well. But because of the splendid detail marshaled in this remarkable timeline, there can be no dispute over what happened, when, and where, and what it looked like. This is an historic accomplishment of scholarship and imagination."--Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University
