Description

Georgians, like all Americans, experienced the Civil War in a variety of ways. Through selected articles drawn from the New Georgia Encyclopedia, this collection chronicles the diversity of Georgias Civil War experience and reflects the most current scholarship in terms of how the Civil War has come to be studied, documented, and analyzed.The Atlanta campaign and Shermans March to the Sea changed the course of the war in 1864, in terms both of the upheaval and destruction inflicted on the state and the life span of the Confederacy. While the dramatic events of 1864 are fully documented, this companion gives equal coverage to the many other aspects of the warnaval encounters and guerrilla warfare, prisons and hospitals, factories and plantations, politics and policies all of which provided critical support to the Confederacys war effort. The book also explores home-front conditions in depth, with an emphasis on emancipation, dissent, Unionism, and the experience and activity of African Americans and women.Historians today are far more conscious of how memoryas public commemoration, individual reminiscence, historic preservation, and literary and cinematic depictionshas shaped the wars multiple meanings. Nowhere is this legacy more varied or more pronounced than in Georgia, and a substantial part of this companion explores the many ways in which Georgians have interpreted the war experience for themselves and others over the past 150 years. At the outset of the sesquicentennial these new historical perspectives allow us to appreciate the Civil War as a complex and multifaceted experience for Georgians and for all southerners.A Project of the New Georgia Encyclopedia; Published in Association with the Georgia Humanities Council and the University System of Georgia/GALILEO.
