The chaos and suffering that swept through the United States during the Civil War affected not only humans—but also the animal world. In Animal Histories of the Civil War, a team of Civil War scholars argue how animal contributions, such as providing mobility, food, and companionship, not only impacted the way the war was fought, but also determined its outcome and the way it was remembered. Edited by Earl J. Hess, author of Civil War Logistics: A Study of Military Transportation and the former Stewart W. McClelland Chair in History at Lincoln Memorial University, Animal Histories highlights the relationship and “interaction between animals and humans under extreme duress” within the context of the Civil War era.
