Crossroads of Freedom

Antietam

James M. McPherson

Pivotal Moments in American History

  • McPherson is a Pulitzer-prize winning and media friendly historian.
  • 'Crossroads of Freedom is what we have come to expect of James McPherson - a compelling account that displays his command of the Civil War's military and political history. It vividly illuminates a critical turning point in the transformation of the war for the Union into a crusade for emancipation.' Eric Foner, Reconstruction
  • There are several other books on Antietam, but this is the most authoritative and concise (c.200pp) history available: unlike most battle histories, it sets Antietam in context, showing its effect on public opinion and diplomacy, and the consequences of victory.
  • Accessible to those with no prior knowledge of the Civil War.
