This edition also includes essays by Don E. Fehrenbacher on the war's origins, Barbara J. Fields on the freeing of the slaves, Shelby Foote on the war's soldiers and commanders, James M. McPherson on the political dimensions of the struggle, and C. Vann Woodward assessing the America that emerged from the war's ashes.
