The Civil War was not simply the concern of white America. Blacks, Indians, and German immigrants also entertained opinions about the conflict. But as Anne J. Bailey argues, those opinions were often shaped by forces of which white Americans were largely unfamiliar. While most sided with the North, these minorities did so in the face of tribal conflict, religious divisions, and the racial prejudices of their fellow Unionists.
