Blood and Daring PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Blood and Daring free pdf "Blood and Daring" will change our views not just of Canada's relationship with the United States, but of the Civil War, Confederation and Canada itself. In "Blood and Daring," lauded historian John Boyko makes a compelling argument that Confederation occurred when and as it did largely because of the pressures of the Civil War. Many readers will be shocked by Canada's deep connection to the war--Canadians fought in every major battle, supplied arms to the South, and many key Confederate meetings took place on Canadian soil. Filled with engaging stories and astonishing facts from previously unaccessed primary sources, Boyko's fascinating new interpretation of the war will appeal to all readers of history.
