Copperheads The Rise and Fall of Lincoln's Opponents in the North (Foreword by James M. McPherson)


Abraham Lincoln fought the Civil War on two fronts - a military effort against the Confederate Army, and an equally intense political struggle against those within the North who opposed the war for a variety of reasons. These Copperheads ranged from outspoken politicians and journalists to groups that secretly conspired with Confederate forces to undermine the war effort. Disgraced after the war, the Copperheads melted into the shadows of history. Jennifer Weber now shines a light on these dissidents and reveals they posed a much more serious threat to Lincoln and the Union than has been commonly recognised.
