Description - Facing America by Shirley Samuels

Facing America investigates and explains the changing face of America during the Civil War. Drawing on the literature as well as the photographs and political cartoons of the period, Shirley Samuels also explores the body of the nation imagined both physically and metaphorically, arguing that the Civil War marks a dramatic shift from identifying the American nation as feminine to identifying it as masculine.
