Used book, 258 pages, some rubbing wear to jacket. Filled with fresh interpretations, puncturing old myths and challenging new ones, this book explores such questions as why the North won and why the South lost (emphasizing the role of contingency in the Northern victory), whether Southern or Northern aggression began the war, and who really freed the slaves, Abraham Lincoln or the slaves themselves.
