By Edmund Wilson, published in 1962.

Under a title derived from James Ryder Randall's “Maryland, My Maryland,” the work in 16 essays ranges discursively over writings related to the war, including those of soldiers North and South (Grant and Sherman, Mosby and Lee), Confederate women diarists (Sarah Morgan and Mary Chesnut), statesmen North and South (Lincoln, Stephens), and writers of fiction North and South (Bierce and De Forest, Tourgée, Cable, and Page), among other subjects for reflection on literary expression associated with the war.
