"Adam Mayers shaltters the too-common perception that the American Civil War occurred in a vacuum. He shows us the neighbor nations of North America affecting one another deeply and enduringly in a turbulent historical moment that was formative not only for the United States, but also for Canada."

"...Mayers' book is a fascinating one, taking a look at a side of early Canadian history that isn't very well known to all Canadians." -Shelf Life September 2004
