Description-
  • With lively narration, telling anecdotes and vivid battlefield accounts, Michigan and the Civil War presents, as never before, the story of Michigan's heroic role in saving the Union. Beginning with Michigan's antebellum period and antislavery heritage, the book describes the state's rapid response to President Lincoln's call to arms, its involvement in the greatest battles and its most interesting personalities. In the triumphant conclusion, Custer corners Lee at Appomattox, and the Fourth Michigan Cavalry apprehends the fleeing Davis. Based on thorough and new research, this volume is surprising in breadth, at times awe-inspiring and a continual revelation of long-overlooked Civil War contributions of the Great Lake State.

About the Author-
  • Jack Dempsey, former assistant attorney general for the State of Michigan, is firmly embedded in the Michigan Civil War community. He runs a popular Michigan in the Civil War blog and is the vice-president of the Michigan Historical Commission, as well as a board member of the Michigan History Foundation and the Historical Society of Michigan. He is also a color bearer with the Civil War Preservation Trust.
