This is the story of the impact of the Civil War on the minds and hearts of the people of the North. In a fusion of fiction and history, Fleming gives a new view of America's past. He peoples his saga with an unforgettable gallery of men and women, striggling to cope with the passions and grief of a postwar era. From the Fifth Ave. mansions of the Astors and the Vanderbilts to savage quarrels in a divided White House, to the oath-filled chaos of a big-city newsroom, this book, takes us inside one of the most bizarre, least understood eras in American history.
