A Rising Thunder: From Lincolns Election to the Battle of Bull Run : An Eyewitness History by Richard Wheeler, Richard Wheeler

Using the vast mass of eyewitness accounts with his usual deftness, popular historian Richard Wheeler takes the reader from the secession of South Carolina through the firing on Fort Sumter, the wave of further secessions, the Union loss of the naval base at Norfolk, and the efforts of both sides to cobble together armies. Using contemporary diaries, newspapers, speeches, and articles, Wheeler captures the gradual development of the crisis between North and South over the half-century before the war and ends the book with the First Battle of Bull Run, in which those armies clashed, and the Confederacy won a large but ultimately fruitless victory. Book jacket.
