After so many books have been written about the civil war, is there anything new left to say? Indeed there is as author Vernette Carlson proves in her new book. She provides a unique look at the critical antebellum and civil war years that is is both original and fascinating. Using census data and other primary sources as her launch point, she examines the human, economic and resource factors that are so important in determining the outcome of a war, and that are so often under emphasized. She shows that this innovative way of examining the war can answer a number of critical questions: Was the outcome foreseen? Would the outcome have been different if the war had started in 1850 instead of 1860? Did immigration tip the balance of power between north and south? What effect did western expansion have on the war? The reader will learn the answers to these and a whole host of other key questions in Dr. Carlson's important new book.
