Gwynne, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, paints a different picture of what most of us know about the Civil War. His meticulous research for his latest book, Hymns of the Republic, provides a chilling look into the final year of the War between the North and South. While war atrocities are common knowledge, Gwynne digs deeper to tell the brutal stories we may not have studied in history class.
