Description

Noted historian William J. Cooper has forged a reputation as one of today's foremost Civil War experts. In We Have the War Upon Us, Cooper takes a fresh look at the months between Lincoln's election and the attack on Fort Sumter that sparked the war. For years, compromise had kept the North and South from conflict- but in these crucial months, the actions of major players on both sides pushed the country to the brink of destruction.

Professional reviews

"The political jostling and missteps in the months leading up to the firing on Fort Sumter in April 1861 are covered in great depth. Andrew Garman gives an adequate performance of this complex and little known aspect of the Civil War. Cooper is unsparing in his assessments of the many characters involved; listeners may be most surprised at his view of Lincoln as an inflexible ideologue who refused to consider compromise with the slave-holding states. Garman's narration is deliberate, and his pace is measured, at times even slow. He changes his intonation slightly for most quotations but makes no effort at affecting any type of accent or unique voice for each person quoted. Nonetheless, he has enough variation in his voice to avoid being monotonous and offers a consistent reading. M.T.F. "
