If you haven’t already done so I highly recommend reading Chandra Manning’s What This Cruel War Was Over, which is now in paperback. In addition, I recently finished reading Joe Glatthaar’s General Lee’s Army. Both studies analyze the role of slavery and race during the war and particularly the way it shaped Confederates and white Southerners. Glatthaar’s book is a first-rate synthesis of recent Civil War historiography without getting bogged down in an analysis of those studies. Check out the interview with Glatthaar at Civil War Book Review.

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
