Wars within a War: Controversy and Conflict over the American Civil War

Joan Waugh and Gary W. Gallagher


This book extends the discussion of Civil War controversies far past the death of the Confederacy in the spring of 1865. Chapters address, among other topics, Walt Whitman's poetry, the handling of the Union and Confederate dead, the treatment of disabled and destitute northern veterans, Ulysses S. Grant's imposing tomb, and Hollywood's long relationship with the Lost Cause narrative.

Keywords: Civil War, Confederacy, Walt Whitman, Union, Confederate dead, disabled, northern veterans, Ulysses S. Grant, Lost Cause narrative
