    OLD LINE DIVIDED by Scott F. Hipp
    Maryland in the Civil War
    January 3, 2012 Hardcover
    The American Civil War was one of history's greatest conflicts. From the coast of France to the pine forests of Florida and from New England to the desert southwest little remained untouched by the ravages of civil war. Over 600,000 soldiers died and another 500,000 were wounded. Men, women, and children battled on the homefront and the battlefront. Follow the likes of Lincoln, Davis, Grant, and Lee as they conduct their military campaigns and handle the political, social, and economic forces facing their nations. In Maryland, an important Border State, Governor Hicks, Mayor Brown of Baltimore, Frederick Douglas, and Harriet Tubman experienced those same forces in the Old Line State. Maryland has a rich and glorious history. The state was founded in the early 17th century as a religious haven by the Calvert family. From its participation in the War for Independence to the creation of Francis Scott Key's patriotic anthem during the War of 1812, Maryland has been at the center of historic America. It was the Civil War, however, that thrust the state into a role of unprecendented importance and conflict as it struggled to define itself as either North or South. This is the story of Maryland and Marylanders in the Civil War. This is Volume I of a two volume set. Volume I covers the antebellum era through the battles and events of 1862.
    Volume II to be released at a later date. Each volume sold separately.
