With excerpts from Civil War letters, diaries, speeches, and news articles, the 48 cards in this quiz deck echo the voices of people involved in the epic struggle: Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, Frederick Douglass and Louisa May Alcott, Union and Confederate soldiers and sailors, reporters, politicians, and more. Each card front presents a brief quotation; the back identifies the speaker and the context in concise, lively prose. Whether enjoyed as a multiplayer quiz game or savored alone, these vignettes convey the courage, humanity, and patriotic fervor of those caught up in this historic conflict.
