Georgia Open Stacks
The University of Georgia Press is temporarily providing open, read-only access to a selection of our titles in history and other humanities fields. In response to the closures of school, libraries, and other public places due to COVID-19, our hope is provide material that will be of use to students as their classes are moved online or cancelled and to the general public as they self-isolate.
As you read the full texts of these works, you are able to communicate with the author and other readers on our Manifold site or through Twitter, joining existing threads or beginning new conversations. Some author-generated supplemental materials are provided to inform and supplement the teaching, learning, and reading experience. All rights-restricted images and/or text have been redacted.

History in the Headlines

Series editors Catherine Clinton and Jim Downs work alongside a distinguished advisory board to offer books that contextualize current events and provide essential perspective.
New Perspectives on the Civil War Era
This series is dedicated to the publication of primary sources (letters, diaries, speeches, etc.) of the Civil War era from a wide diversity of perspectives—respecting the soldier’s voice but not privileging it over every other as is the case in many such edited volumes. It recognizes that there are many voices from the Civil War era that need to be heard. Soldiers, women, civilians, slaves, politicians, bureaucrats, journalists, diplomats, and foreign observers all have a particular insight into that great conflict and deserve to have a forum to have their stories told.
