Episode Details

By 1862, it was clear that the effects of Civil War reached far beyond the battlefields. Using the Shenandoah Valley as a setting, we describe what life was like on the northern and southern home fronts. We also analyze how Lincoln's issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation changed the nature of the war.
