Canada and the American Civil War : Prelude To War by Mark Vinet

In April 1861, troops of the new Confederate States of America opened fire on Union-occupied fort Sumter and launched a bloody four-year war that killed at least six hundred and twenty thousand men, including thousands of Canadians who fought in the War. In accordance with Britains foreign policy towards the War, Canada was officially neutral. This, however, did not prevent approximately fifty thousand Canadian-born soldiers from serving in both armies. Four Canadians attained the rank of brigadier-general and twenty-nine were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Throughout the War, Canadian public opinion was divided for various reasons, including religion, language, culture, economic class, and moral background. The Civil War was the culmination of the reciprocal, sometimes parallel, but often intertwining influence of both the United States and Canada on each others historical, territorial, political, economic, and social development.Following the War - two new nations emerged.PRELUDE TO WAR is the first in a series of books dealing with Canada and the American Civil War by Canadian author and historian Mark Vinet. It offers an in-depth study of the fiery issues that led to the War and dramatically unveils how both countries, as neighbors, dealt with the contentious issues of Sectionalism, Slavery, Slave Rebellions, Abolitionism, and the Underground Railroad. Author biography: Historian and author Mark Vinet was born in 1964 near the city of Montreal in the province of Quebec, Canada. He shares a bicultural English and French ancestry and is fluently bilingual in both languages. He is founder of the North American Historical Institute and the Canada Civil War Association, which presents a series of lectures by Mark Vinet on Canada and the American Civil War. He is presently writing his second book entitled THE ROAD TO SECESSION: Canada and the American Civil War.
