Publisher's Summary

Margaret Leech’s Pulitzer Prize-winning history paints a wonderfully vivid and lively picture of Washington, DC, during the Civil War. In addition to the major events and figures such as Lincoln, Leech uses telling anecdotes and draws upon cameo players such as Louisa May Alcott, Walt Whitman, Andrew Carnegie, and a Confederate lady spy to create a living portrait of a sleepy, unfinished city as it struggles to become the strong capital of a united nation.

Civil war buffs should all listen to this book

unlike most books on the civil war that focus on the strategies and tactics. This one focuses on the civilian population and what they were doing, thinking and acting while the nation's bloodiest war raged sometimes just miles from their home. it really gives you the other side of the same coin we call the civil war
