Contributors to this collection, public historians with experience at Civil War battle sites, examine key shifts in the Civil War and the context surrounding them to show that many chains of events caused the course of the war to change: the Federal defeats at First Bull Run and Ball's Bluff, the wounding of Joseph Johnston at Seven Pines and the Confederate victory at Chancellorsville, the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, the Federal victory at Vicksburg, Grant's decision to move on to Richmond rather than retreat from the Wilderness, the naming of John B. Hood as commander of the Army of Tennessee, and the 1864 presidential election. In their conclusion, the editors suggest that the assassination of Abraham Lincoln might have been the war's final turning point.

"Rejecting the notion that the war hinged on a single pivot point or plot line, the editors have assembled nine vivid essays treating some of the war's most consequential moments-from First Bull Run to the election of 1864. Skillfully tracking between the eastern and western theater and campaigns both military and political, the contributors remind that small events can cast large shadows. Even those well acquainted with the Civil War will rethink not only the relationships between individual battles but also the very cadence of our nation's defining conflict." - Brian Matthew Jordan, author, Marching Home: Union Veterans and Their Unending Civil War, Pulitzer Prize finalist
