Publisher's Summary

Noted historian William J. Cooper has forged a reputation as one of today' s foremost Civil War experts. In We Have the War upon Us, Cooper takes a fresh look at the months between Lincoln's election and the attack on Fort Sumter that sparked the war. For years, compromise had kept the North and South from conflict but in these crucial months, the actions of major players on both sides pushed the country to the brink of destruction.

Great Book & Performance About A Fascinating Time

Although I must say that I am still hoping to find a book about this same period of American history that includes more information about contemporary culture and the events, news reports, meeting minutes, personal correspondence, etc., I was very pleased with this book.

William J. Cooper is a talented writer. the narration was clear and enjoyable. I learned a great deal, even though I am a long-time student of the Civil War and have read and own dozens of books along with more than 50 hours of documentaries on the subject (most of them about battles and biographies).

I cannot imagine what it was like to live during these times but I like to. And books like this one help ne do just that.
