American Jewry and the Civil War
By Bertram Wallace Korn
Jewish Publications Society: 2001
This book has long been considered a classic text on the Jewish role in early American history—on the Jewish community as a whole during the tumultuous years of the war, and on its effort to raise the concept of human rights and equality above restrictions based on race or religion.
This extensive volume features a new foreword and new afterword, as well as an author's preface to the original edition, an author's preface to the first paperback edition (1961), an epilogue, four appendixes, notes, a bibliography, and an index.
