Edward and Sarah Fitch were on the frontlines of the anti-slavery movement in America. They were in Lawrence, Kan. when William Quantrill and his raiders committed the greatest civilian atrocity of the war by burning the town and killing more than 180 defenseless civilians. More than 150 letters from the couple give history buffs new insight into the bitter, personal battles that fueled the flames of war. A great collection for anyone who wants a complete understanding of the Civil War.
