Description 

By Nelson D. Lankford

In early March 1861, civil war loomed. By late April, Americans had begun to kill their fellow citizens. Cry Havoc! recounts in riveting detail the events that divided the states and reveals how quirks of timing, character, and place all conspired to transform the nation into a battlefield. Nelson Lankford, author of Richmond Burning, chronicles the eight critical weeks that began with Lincoln's inauguration through the explosion at Fort Sumter and the president's fateful response to it. Before Fort Sumter, the balance could have tipped in favor of a peaceful resolution. This book addresses the many might-have-beens, both familiar and lesser known. What if Lincoln had delayed the proclamation calling for troops? Could wavering Unionists in the upper South have held the line? A must read for all who wish to understand the birth of the modern United States of America, Cry Havoc! probes the fateful series of events and analyzes each of the failed possibilities that hindsight affords.

Nelson D. Lankford is coeditor of Eye of the Storm and Images from the Storm, the bestselling books on Union mapmaker and artist, Robert Knox Sneden. Lankford is also Vice President for Programs and Virginius Dabney Editor at the Virginia Historical Society.

Some of these changes seem unequivocally beneficial– like saving families a fortune on bulk purchases of expensive staples like diapers or toilet paper. But when it comes to how warehouse-club shopping influences our food consumption, it's not clear how good the change has been. deit consolidation Parsons, who watched Hakeem Olajuwon lead the Rockets to back-to-back NBA titles in the mid-90s, has competition on multiple fronts.
