The Atlantic presents the Civil War

Project Info

On the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, The Atlantic published this commemorative issue featuring stories by Mark Twain, Henry James, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Frederick Douglass, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, and many more from their legendary archives. It also featured an opening essay by then-president Barack Obama. An outtake: “Lincoln’s writings speak to me as they speak to so many Americans, reminding us what is best about ourselves and the Union he saved: that though we may have our differences, we are one people, and we are one nation, united by a common creed.”
