Availability: Ready to download

A New York Times bestselling historian sheds new light on Sherman’s epic “March to the Sea,” especially the soldiers, doctors, nurses, and civilians who would change the nation for the better. America in the antebellum years was a deeply troubled country, divided by partisan gridlock and ideological warfare, angry voices in the streets and the statehouses, furious clashes A New York Times bestselling historian sheds new light on Sherman’s epic “March to the Sea,” especially the soldiers, doctors, nurses, and civilians who would change the nation for the better. America in the antebellum years was a deeply troubled country, divided by partisan gridlock and ideological warfare, angry voices in the streets and the statehouses, furious clashes over race and immigration, and a growing chasm between immense wealth and desperate poverty. The Civil War that followed brought America to the brink of self-destruction. But it also created a new country from the ruins of the old one—bolder and stronger than ever. No event in the war was more destructive, or more important, than William Sherman’s legendary march through Georgia—crippling the heart of the South’s economy, freeing thousands of slaves, and marking the beginning of a new era. This invasion not only quelled the Confederate forces, but transformed America, forcing it to reckon with a century of injustice. Dickey reveals the story of women actively involved in the military campaign and later, in civilian net- works. African Americans took active roles as soldiers, builders, and activists. Rich with despair and hope, brutality and compassion, Rising in Flames tells the dramatic story of the Union’s invasion of the Confederacy, and how this colossal struggle helped create a new nation from the embers of the Old South.

    ‘Rising in Flames’ walks gingerly down the fine line between textbook and historical narrative. The story follows the men and women who supported Sherman’s March to the Sea, from front line commanders to the women in the field hospitals and at home sending supplies to the troops hundreds of miles away. This book is really one that shows how grand planning and mostly logistics led to the defeat of the South in the “western theatre. ” I can’t say this is what I thought the book would be about, and ‘Rising in Flames’ walks gingerly down the fine line between textbook and historical narrative.

This is a book for an intermediate or greater Civil War aficionado.

    This book was good. It was well researched and contained some interesting historical nuggets. The author follows to plight of numerous characters and at times it can get cumbersome following all of the characters and bouncing between timelines and geography. The book is a worthwhile read, especially if you like Civil War history but don't expect it to be your favorite book on the subject.
