Beschreibung

Concentrating on ideology and cultural values, Liberty, Virtue, and Progress explores the motivations that caused Northerners to fight America's Civil War. Arguing for the primary significance of ideals and cultural values in defining a war, the book examines the opinions of both the Northern soldier and the civilian about the meaning of the civil War in terms of defining American nationalism, the character of the American people, and the future of free government.

Portrait

Earl J. Hess is Associate Professor and Director of the History program at Lincoln Memorial University.
