The Rivers Ran Backward

The Civil War and the Remaking of the American Middle Border

Christopher Phillips

  • Chronicles the Civil War in the "Middle Border" states
  • Explores the creation of regional identity by formal and cultural politics during the war and its aftermath
  • Argues that historians have largely ignored the centrality of the war, and the West, to perhaps its most lasting outcome: the rise of regionalism as a force in postwar domestic politics
