Horrible battles and slaughter. Yet honor prevails and glory abounds?  Brother against brother. Emancipation or states’ rights? The many stories and questions about the war of rebellion against the United States, perhaps the most significant event in the history of our nation, are found in books.


Today none of us were around to witness it. No longer do any of us have alive a grandparent to tell us the tales of valor or shame.


Books On The Square offers thousands of books, the rare ones written by those who participated or lived in those times, and the many who have researched, imagined, and written about the Civil War.
