It could be argued that the Civil War was the most influential event in the history of the United States. In The Civil War and the Constitution, political scientist John W. Burgess explores the politics, people, and sentiments of this time, and closely examines the constitutional issues of the Civil War. Volume 2 of this two-volume work covers battles in New Orleans, Kentucky, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Atlanta, and Charleston, as well as Sherman's march through Georgia. The Emancipation Proclamation is discussed in great depth, along with constitutional issues created by the military events of 1862 and 1863. JOHN W. BURGESS, Ph.D., LL.D., was a professor of political science and constitutional law and dean of the faculty of political science at Columbia University in New York.
