The Hidden Civil War, The Story of the Copperheads. [Signed by the Author and with publisher’s card]
A study of the Civil War-era faction of the Democratic Party that opposed the war and wanted to make peace with the Confederacy.
From the dust jacket: “Wood Gray’s The Hidden Civil War is a sound and valuable book based on original sources that have never before been so thoroughly examined.”—Carl Van Doren. “It tells the almost forgotten story of ‘the opposition’ in the days when Civil War came to the United States. It throws new light on those individuals and groups of the North who did not want to fight the South…”—Avery Craven.
