T.W. Harvey

Answering Lincoln's Call: War in America


2023 NYC BBA Distinguished Favorite

The Civil War has been the subject of many books, but few have focused on the motivations of the men who fought it. In his book Answering Lincoln's Call, T.W. Harvey provides a glimpse into the minds of these young men, based on letters written by his own ancestors. Harvey argues that the Civil War was not simply a conflict between the North and the South, but also a war between generations. The young men who fought in the war were motivated by a variety of factors, including patriotism, duty, and a sense of adventure. They were also eager to prove themselves to their elders. Harvey's book provides a moving and insightful look at the Civil War from the perspective of the men who fought it.
