|Summary:|| The Civil War thrust millions of men and women--rich and poor, soldiers and civilians, enslaved and free--onto the roads of the South. During four years of war, Southerners lived on the move. In the hands of Yael A. Sternhell, movement becomes a radically new means to perceive the full trajectory of the Confederacy's rise, struggle, and ultimate defeat. --from publisher description.
