"Damn'd Dutch!" for the Union


"Damn'd Dutch!" for the Union

"The Hermann Volksblatt articles are a fascinating account of the American Civil War that begins during the Presidential Campaign of 1860 and the growing Secession crisis. Readers may gain insight into a small rural region that possessed strong ties to Lincoln and the Union case. Published during the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, "Damn'd Dutch" For The Union plays an important role in creating a picture of how this great war tore apart the nation, the states and even friends and families."

Nathan D. Cabot, Dec 2012.
