The final book by Marquette University historian Frank L. Klement (1905-1994), this is a vivid chronological narrative of Wisconsin's role in the pivotal event in American history. In this volume, Klement greatly expanded his 1962 booklet on this topic, adding new material on each of Wisconsin's 53 infantry regiments, political and constitutional issues, soldiers voting, women and the war, and Wisconsin's black soldiers.
