In Civil War Writing, editors Gary Gallagher and Stephen Cushman bring together commentary on a wide-ranging group of memoirs, autobiographies, and other personal narratives of the war. Although the book is lacking in a unified thematic emphasis, it rests on something equally important. The editors have assembled an all-star lineup of contributors who produce a book with many quality contributions. The editors modestly, perhaps too modestly, state that this book fails to adequately represent the diversity of voices produced by the war. While this volume may over-represent stories from soldiers, the editors promised that more essays, focusing on a wide variety of topics, are on the way.
