The political turmoil of the Civil War Era has been analyzed many times, but one area of this period's history is often overlooked: a large body of humorous, clever, and scathing editorial cartoons from publications such as Harper's Weekly, Vanity Fair, Punch, and Leslie's Illustrated. In "Lines of Contention: Political Cartoons of the Civil War", the best of these cartoons has finally been collected into one place to illuminate the social, political, and cultural climate of Civil War-Era America. The cartoons have been pulled from both sides of the fence and provide insight into the incidents and opinions surrounding the war as well as the mind-sets and actions of all the major figures. "Lines of Contention: Political Cartoons of the Civil War" presents a unique history of the Civil War and its participants.
