Product Description

The newest installment in the #1 bestselling companion series to Fox's historical docudrama, Bill O'Reilly's Legends & Lies, a pulse-quickening account of the Civil War

From the birth of the Republican Party to the Confederacy's first convention, the Underground Railroad to the Emancipation Proclamation, the Battle of Gettysburg to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Civil War reveals the amazing and often little known stories behind the battle lines of America's bloodiest war and debunks the myths that surround its greatest figures, including Harriet Tubman, Abraham Lincoln, General Robert E. Lee, Frederick Douglass, Stonewall Jackson, John Singleton Mosby, Ulysses S. Grant, Jefferson Davis, John Wilkes Booth, William Tecumseh Sherman, and more. An epic struggle between the past and future, the Civil War sought to fulfill the promise that "all men are created equal." It freed an enslaved race, decimated a generation of young men, ushered in a new era of brutality in war, and created modern America. Featuring archival images, eyewitness accounts, and beautiful artwork that further brings the history to life, The Civil War is the action-packed and ultimate follow-up to the #1 bestsellers The Patriots and The Real West.

Bill O'Reilly is the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor, the highest-rated cable news show in the country. He is the author of many number-one bestselling books, including Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, Killing Reagan and Killing the Rising Sun.

David Fisher is the author of twenty-three New York Times bestsellers. His work has also appeared in most major magazines and many newspapers. He lives in New York with his wife and two sons.

I have not studied the Civil War, partially because it was such a painful time in our country's history. This book picked me up and compelled me through the war, stopping here & there to absorb an event; its pain, suffering & purpose. On we went to the next event, so that the cumulative effect was felt by the end of the book, but the overview was most beneficial. I am giving this book to my high school age grandson to help stave off ignorance of our wonderful country's history. Thank you, Bill ( and staff ), once more for leading this crusade against ignorance !!

I bought Legends & Lies: The Civil War for my husband's birthday. He is quite the Civil War buff. We call it "The late unpleasantness" here in the South. He can't put it down. I am so pleased that he loves it so. I look forward to my turn. Thank you for all of your wonderful books. We have most of them and they are a revelation and a pleasure.
