Slaves' War by Andrew Ward

One important perspective largely missing from recountings of the Civil War is that of the slaves. The Slaves’ War: The Civil War in the Words of Former Slaves by Andrew Ward seeks to correct that omission.

The historian provides first-person accounts of the slave experience during and after the War Between the States. Sources include diaries, letters and interviews. Should be a valuable read.
