Unlike most books on the subject, Professor Gallagher sees beyond the myriad battles of the war to include interesting and instructive aspects. His credentials as Professor in the History of the American Civil War at the University of Virginia support his ease and facility with the subject. He discusses women in conflict, illness and injury, what soldiers ate and wore, the naval theater, African-American troops, political pressures, and life on the homefront. He creates cozy, intriguing biographies of Lee, Lincoln, and other principals. The professor's treble, nasal voice is no disadvantage to the delivery of well-organized, spontaneous, and entertaining lectures aimed at introductory level students, at the same time, without insulting experts.
