xx, 519 pp. "Why did Abraham Lincoln sneak into Washington for his inauguration? Was the Gettysburg Address written on the back of an envelope? Where did the Underground Railroad run? Did General Sherman really say, "War is Hell"? If you can't answer these questions, you're not alone. Millions of Americans, bored by dull textbooks, are in the dark about the most significant event in our history. Now New York Times bestselling author Kenneth C. Davis comes to the rescue, deftly sorting out the players, the politics, and the key events - Emancipation and Reconstruction, Shilohand Gettysburg, Generals Grant and Lee, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and much more. Drawing on moving eyewitness accounts, Davis includes a wealth of "hidden history" about the roles played by women and African Americans before and during the war, along with lesser-known facts that will enthrall even learned Civil War buffs. Vivid, informative, and hugely entertaining, Don't Know Much About the Civil War is the only book you'll ever need on "the war that never ended.""Keywords: CIVIL WAR AMERICAN HISTORY
Read information about the authorKenneth C. Davis is the New York Times bestselling author of the Don't Know Much About® series of books and audios for adults and children.

His book, THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF AMERICA AT WAR (May 5, 2015) was called "searing" analysis by Publishers Weekly. This new book is one in a series of dramatic narrative nonfiction works. AMERICA'S HIDDEN HISTORY also became a New York Times bestseller on publication. A NATION RISING also uses dramatic narratives to tell the "stories your textbooks left out."
Kenneth C. Davis’ success aptly makes the case that Americans don’t hate history, just the dull version they slept through in class. But many of them want to know now because their kids are asking them questions they can’t answer. Davis’s approach is to refresh us on the subjects we should have learned in school. He does it by busting myths, setting the record straight and always remembering that fun is not a four-word letter word.
His forthcoming book, IN THE SHADOW OF LIBERTY: THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF SLAVERY, FOUR PRESIDENTS, AND FIVE BLACK LIVES (SEPT 2016) looks at the lives of five people enslaved by four of America's most famous Presidents and the role of slavery in American history and the presidency.
