In the summer of 1862, after a year of protracted fighting, Abraham Lincoln decided on a radical change of strategy, one that abandoned hope for a compromise peace and committed the nation to all-out war. The centerpiece of that new strategy was the Emancipation Proclamation: an unprecedented use of federal power that would revolutionize Southern society.

Slotkin's analysis of the political crisis engendered by the Lincoln-McClellan rivalry really added depth to my understanding of this battle, the US Civil War and and the tenor of the 1860s. Good read, highly recommended.
