Marching Home  Union Veterans and Their Unending Civil War, Brian Matthew Jordan
5 Brian Matthew Jordan Marching Home Union Veterans and Their Unending Civil War
Norton Publishing 2014 0871407817 / 9780871407818 Hardcover New New 
Beginning where most Civil War histories end, the author reinterpretation of post-Civil War society reveals the desperate fate that awaited Union veterans after demobilization. While Confederate troops returned to homes that shared their sense of defeat, Union soldiers encountered northern civilians who were determined to shield themselves from the realities of the battlefield and put the war behind them. The author shatters the narrative and romantic vision of Union soldiers as the celebrated heroes of a bitterly won peace. The authors reports on criminals attempting to steal hard won pensions. Instead of being reintegrated and given the place to share their stories, they are patted and patronized so Northerners can move on. One story tells of a veteran who drilled his bullgod by moonlight to relive the familiar motions of battle. Many veterans could not forget and could not move on. This is their story.

He is often judged by his choices in and management of generals, rather than strategies. But, no other chief executive in American history exercised such tenacity and hands-on shaping of military strategy.

The book examines for the first time why Booth decided to conspire against Lincoln, and sets that decision in the context of a bitterly divided family.
