Summary
"During the American Civil War, Maryland did not join the Confederacy but nonetheless possessed divided loyalties and sentiments. These divisions came to a head in the years following the war. This book argues that Maryland did not adopt a clear postbellum Civil War identity. Maryland's postwar legacy ad memory was divided between those emphasizing the state's Unionist efforts and those underscoring Maryland's connections to the Confederacy and its defeated cause. Depictions of Civil War Maryland both inside and outside the state hinged on interpretations of the state's loyalty. The contested Civil War memories of Maryland not only mirrored a much larger national struggle and debate, they also reveal a clashing of memories that is more intense and vitriolic than the larger national narrative. The close proximity of conflicted Civil War memories within the state contributed to a perpetual contestation. Those outside the state also vigorously argued over the place of Maryland in Civil War memory in order to establish its place in the divisive legacy of the war. By using Maryland as a lens to Civil War memory, we see how truly divisive the war remained and the centrality of its memory to the United States well into the twentieth-century"--
