Love and WarBook - 2000
The story traces the activities of the Hazard and Main families, great families deriving from North and South respectively and bound by friendship and marriage, through the nation's bloodiest conflict. Showing the reader that the Civil War was probably inevitable given the intractable differences between the North and South, and the stubborness on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line. Shows how it came to be that despite the North's numbers and industrial might, it took years for the North to successfully overwhelm the South.
