The Civil War era in American history presents many paradoxes. Probably more literature has been produced on the war, its origins and its aftermath, than on any other period in American history or, for that matter, on any comparable period in the history of the modern world. At the same time, to many 21st-century readers, the events and the issues that divided the nation between 1850 and 1877, and peaked in the bloody war between April 1861 and April 1865, seem increasingly remote from contemporary concerns.
