In this mass of material the man with a preconceived notion can find facts to his liking--In no part of history of the Civil War is a wholesome skepticism more desirable, and nowhere is more applicable a fundamental tenet of historical criticism that all right is never on one side and all the wrong on the other. James Ford Rhodes, History of the United States. The history of the United States from 1861 to 1865 is marked by that tremendous interal upheaval, the American Civil War, which brought to a dramatic close the long period of conflict that threatened to disrupt the union of the states existing from the beginning of their independance. Its pages are replete with glorious accounts of a bitter struggle, each side convinced of the justice of its cause; each prepared to sacrifice all for the ideal it cherished.
