This book by Lowell Harrison was originally published in 1979 in hardcover, this book by Lowell Harrison remains quite good even after more than thirty years.
In flowing prose, Harrison tells the history of the Civil War in Kentucky from various aspects including economic, political, and cultural. Kentucky’s involvement in the Civil War was unique since: it was a border state and also officially declared neutrality. Many Kentuckians were divided as to which side to support. Most, though, supported the Union, as is shown in the records of enlistments and draftees into the Union army. Harrison covers several of the battles that were fought in Kentucky and the guerrilla war that occurred in the state.
This new edition is highly recommended to those interested in the Civil War especially in Kentucky.
