Contents:
Introduction: the desperate side of war / Daniel E. Sutherland -- Telling and retelling the legend of the "Free State of Jones" / Victoria E. Bynum -- "Shot for being bushwhackers": guerrilla war and extralegal violence in a north Georgia community, 1862-1865 / Jonathan D. Sarris -- "In time of war": Unionists hanged in Kinston, North Carolina, February 1864 / Lesley J. Gordon -- The politics of violence: Unionist pamphleteers in Virginia's inner Civil War / Jon L. Wakelyn -- The absence of violence: Confederates and Unionists in Culpepper County, Virginia / Daniel E. Sutherland -- Definitions of victory: east Tennessee Unionists in the Civil War and reconstruction / Noel C. Fisher -- A people's war: partisan conflict in Tennessee and Kentucky / B. Franklin Cooling -- The limits of dissent and loyalty in Texas / David Paul Smith -- "Out of stinking distance": the guerrilla war in Louisiana / Donald S. Frazier -- Bushwhackers, provosts, and tories: the guerrilla war in Arkansas / Robert R. Mackey -- Inside wars: the cultural crisis of warfare and the values of ordinary people / Michael Fellman.
Review: "Much Civil War violence occurred far away from traditional battlefields like Shiloh and Sharpsburg. Indeed, some of the war's most intense violence occurred on the Confederate home front, as families and neighbors were pitted against one another in bloody struggles for control." "Daniel E. Sutherland gathers eleven essays, each one exploring the Confederacy's internal war in a different state. All help to broaden our view of the complexity of war and to provide us with a clear picture of war's consequences and its impact on communities, homes, and families."--BOOK JACKET.
