Summary: ''During the war, approximately 620,000 soldiers lost their lives. An equivalent proportion of today's population would be six million. This Republic of Suffering explores the impact of this enormous death toll from every angle: material, political, intellectual, and spiritual. Drew Gilpin Faust delineates the ways death changed not only individual lives but the life of the nation and its understanding of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. She describes how survivors mou ...show morerned and how a deeply religious culture struggled to reconcile the slaughter with its belief in a benevolent God, pondered who should die and under what circumstances, and reconceived its understanding of life after death.'' ''Throughout, the voices of soldiers and their families, of statesmen, generals, preachers, poets, surgeons, and nurses, of northerners and southerners, slaveholders and freedpeople, of the most exalted and the most humble are brought together to give us a vivid understanding of the Civil War's most fundamental and widely shared reality.''--BOOK JACKET. ...show less

Though much is written about the Civil War, the impact of the unprecedented carnage on a nation is rarely explored. Now, in "This Republic of Suffering," acclaimed historian Drew Gilpin Faust does ju ...show morest that, taking an in-depth look at how the survivors of the war dealt with the staggering death toll and exploring the changes that came out of this. Faust analyzes the reactions and feelings of the survivors from every angle: material, political, intellectual, and spiritual.
