Abstract

In almost all Civil War books, “border states” are the four slave states that did not secede: Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, and Missouri. In The Rivers Ran Backward: The Civil War and the Remaking of the American Middle Border, Christopher Phillips drops Delaware and Maryland and adds Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Kansas.
