Immigrant Unionists in South
Posted by: Dean B. Mahin (ID *****5447) Date: January 30, 2003 at 13:47:34

I am working on a book which will examine the reactions of European
immigrants and their adult children to major issues of the Civil War period
(secession, slavery, emancipation, and the presidential elections of l860 and
l864) and the reasons many of them enlisted in the Union or Confederate
armies. I am searching for letters, diaries, memoirs, or other documents
indicating the attitudes and reactions of these immigrants.

I am very interested in obtaining such materials on European immigrants in
the South who were Unionists, especially the German Unionists in Texas. If
you have such materials or suggestions as to sources, I would be very glad to
hear from you. Anyone providing materials used in the book will be mentioned
in the Acknowledgments section or Preface.

The new book will be a companion volume to my recently published book on the
international dimensions of the Civil War, One War at a Time. Author
interviews are on two websites: Abraham Lincoln Online -- http://www.netins.n
et/showcase/creative/lincoln/books/mahin.htm -- and Civil War Book News -- h
ttp:// .
