Summary
During the US Civil War, Americans confronted profound moral problems about how to fight in the conflict. In this innovative book, D.H. Dilbeck reveals how the Union sought to wage a just war against the Confederacy. He shows that northerners fought according to a distinct 'moral vision of war', an array of ideas about the nature of a truly just and humane military effort
