    review ✓ Dissonance: The Turbulent Days Between Fort Sumter and Bull Run Dissonance, The Turbulent Days Between Fort Sumter and Bull RunApril of 1865 has been referred to as the month that saved America but April of 1861 may have been just as vital if not so It was during this time that Washington DC sat completely surrounded by two states that were teetering on the verge of secession Once Virginia did leave the Union only Maryland provided the federal government with a connection to the rest of the nation and it was a tenuous connection at bestAbraham Lincoln was clearly out of his league in this early stage of the game and he leaned heavily on General Winfield Scott For his part Scott was keenly aware of the danger facing Washington and began to immediately call for any militia units that could get to DC uickly from loyal northern states The problem was that these militia units would have to travel through Maryland a slave state that might well c

    review ✓ Dissonance: The Turbulent Days Between Fort Sumter and Bull Run Dissonance, The Turbulent Days Between Fort Sumter and Bull RunStarts off really strong especially his description of the Pratt Street Riots but the narrative dries out uickly The last few pages try to make something of the book that it didn't set out to do The subject matter is often glanced over in studies of the conflict but I really had to push myself to get through the second half

    review ✓ Dissonance: The Turbulent Days Between Fort Sumter and Bull Run Dissonance, The Turbulent Days Between Fort Sumter and Bull RunThis was a surprisingly good book I've read several books on the Civil War and I had a decent grasp of the timeline leading up to the Battle of Bull Run However this book focused on a very short time period often glossed over by most histories While most of us know of the attack on Harper's Ferry Detzer tells us

    review ✓ Dissonance: The Turbulent Days Between Fort Sumter and Bull Run Dissonance, The Turbulent Days Between Fort Sumter and Bull RunI read this book after reading Detzer's 'Allegiance' Fort Sumter 'Donnybrook' Bull Run and was disappointed at the writing in 'Dissonance' The extremely casual writing style was grating it almost seemed as if he were writing for children If you're interested in a well executed well written book on pretty much this same subject I recommend The Siege of Washington The Untold Story of the Twelve Days that Shook the Union
