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—by Margaret E. Wagner, coauthor and coeditor of The Library of Congress Civil War Desk Reference—convey the courage, humanity, and patriotic fervor of those caught up in this historic conflict.
