Recounting critical battles of the Civil War, The Heart of the Civil War tells stories from some of the most fought-over U.S. territory during the War Between the States. Between 1861 and 1865, Confederate and Union forces clashed again and again for control of strategic points throughout three counties in west-central Maryland - as the war marched north-to-south from the confederacy to the union, and back again. The Heart of the Civil War recounts the war's far-reaching impact on the lives of ordinary but battle-weary Marylanders caught up in now-famous local battles, the conflicted struggles of believers in the confederate cause living on Union soil, and the turbulent, unpredictable politics of war that ultimately helped to preserve the Union.
