Social and Industrial Conditions in the North During the Civil War
Corner House, 1976 - 318 Seiten
The first book to examine what was actually going on during the Civil War on the home front -- as far as the North was concerned. A scholarly and objective survey of the effects of the Civil War on economic and social life in the North. Describes what the people behind the lines were doing in their occupations and their personal lives, and analyzes industrial and agricultural growth and the effects of the war on all aspects of business and commerce. Examines the degree to which the normal activities of the nation were disrupted; and how far and in what manner they were changed. This remains one of the most reliable studies available on this issue. 1976 reprint.
