Summary
In this major new history of the Civil War, Bruce Levine tells the riveting story of how that conflict upended the economic, political, and social life of the old South, utterly destroying the Confederacy and the society it represented and defended
Summary
Told in the words of the people who lived it, The Fall of the House of Dixie illuminates the radical transformation of the American South during and after the Civil War. Award-winning author Bruce Levine employs a wealth of primary sources -- diaries, letters, newspaper articles, government documents, and more -- to vividly bring to life the perspectives of slaves, shopkeepers, soldiers, and others in a stellar history of the South's social, political and economic deconstruction and rebuilding. - Description by Kimberly S. Burton
