A Civil War Treasury of Tales, Legends and Folkloreby Botkin, B. A. and Cushman, Stephen B. and Chappell, Warren
Publisher: University of Nebraska Press
Issue: Spring 2001
B.A. Botkin's work, first published in 1960 and reprinted now with a new introduction by Stephen Cushman, drew its folklore material from a "common ground of human experience and human fantasy" that transcended region, humanized the war, and blurred the distinction between truth and imagination.
