Adam Goodheart

1861 The Civil War AwakeningAdam Goodheart1861: The Civil War Awakening chronicles courage and heroism beyond the battlefields and introduces us to a heretofore little-known cast of Civil War heroes. Adam Goodheart takes us from the corridors of the White House to the slums of Manhattan, from the mouth of the Chesapeake to the Nevada deserts, from Boston Commons to Alcatraz Island, vividly evoking the Union at this moment of ultimate crisis and decision.

Adam Goodheart is a historian, essayist, and journalist. He is a regular columnist for the New York Times'  acclaimed Civil War series, "Disunion." He serves as director of the C. V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience at Washington College.
