Dixie & the Dominion: Canada, the Confederacy, and&hellip by Adam Mayers
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.
