Summary
The Slaves' War delivers an unprecedented vision of the nation's bloodiest conflict, told from the perspective of those whose destiny it decided. Woven together from interviews, diaries, letters, and memoirs, here is the Civil War as seen not only from battlefields and camps but also from slave quarters, kitchens, roadsides, and fields. Speaking in a quintessentially American language of biblical power and intensity, body servants, army cooks and launderers, runaways, teamsters, and gravediggers bring the war to life--from theories about the war's causes to frank assessments of such figures as Lincoln, Davis, Lee, and Grant; from searing memories of the carnage of battle to often startling attitudes toward masters and liberators alike; and from initial jubilation at the Yankee invasion of the slave South to the crushing disappointment of freedom's promise unfulfilled
