    At the close of the Civil War, it was clear that the military conflict that began in South Carolina and was fought largely east of the Mississippi River had changed the politics, policy, and daily life of the entire nation. In an expansive reimagining of post-Civil War America, the chapters here explore these profound changes not only in the South but also in the Southwest, in the Great Plains, and abroad. ;Description based upon print version of record.
