Millions of Americans, bored by dull textbooks, are in the dark about the most significant event in our history. Now New York Times bestselling author Kenneth C. Davis comes to the rescue, deftly sorting out the players, the politics, and the key events—Emancipation and Reconstruction, Shiloh and Gettysburg, Generals Grant and Lee, Harriet Beecher Stowe—and much more.
Drawing on moving eyewitness accounts, Davis includes a wealth of “hidden history” about the roles played by women and African Americans before and during the war, along with lesser-known facts that will enthrall even learned Civil War buffs. Vivid, informative, and hugely entertaining, Don’t Know Much About the Civil War is the only audiobook you’ll ever need on “the war that never ended.”

“Distinct, clear, and balanced. . . . Davis has a gift for deftly rendering the essentials.” (New York Times Book Review)
“Lively and relevant.” (USA Today)
First 5 hours of the book covers the history of slavery in America and how it caused the Civil War.
After that, it spent the next 10 hours covering the actual Civil War and was a well balanced, honest report on the Civil War.
It's more about an anti-slavery rant by author than Civil war History
Yes. Was a spokesperson for anti-slavery,anti-founding fathers,etc...
Too much off topic history of slavery vs. Civil War History
Can I get my money back and get a real Civil War History book?
