Editorial Reviews

"The Civil War proved Lincoln's warning that a 'house divided against itself cannot stand.' However, many of the actual houses of that roiling period withstood not only the war, but the test of time since-and it is a revelation to see them as they look today, and learn about the families who then and since have dwelled in and preserved them. This book literally opens a window into nineteenth-century domestic and cultural history, and brings us a giant step closer to the life and times of the families who survived and endured."-Harold Holzer, author of Lincoln and the Power of the Press and Chariman of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Foundation
