Dixie & the Dominion: Canada, the Confederacy, and the War for the Union
Dixie & the Dominion: Canada, the Confederacy, and the War for the Union
by Adam Mayers
Edition: Hardcover
Price: CDN$ 25.20
17 used & new from CDN$ 4.57

4.0 out of 5 stars Canada's American Civl War, Jan. 5 2004
This is a great book that is a well-written popular work that shows how the Civil War was a North American, rather than just American war.
I had no idea of the connection of Lincoln's assassin John Wilkes Booth to Canada or of any of the Confederate guerilla operations in Quebec and Ontario. Nor did I know that Canadians were very sympathetic to the South and not because of slavery.
It's also interesting that some Canadian political institutions were designed so Canada could avoid a similar experience.
