Now Available in Paperback First study of the Antietam campaign from civilians' perspectives Many never-before-published accounts of the Battle of Antietam

The battle at Antietam Creek, the bloodiest day of the American Civil War, left more than 23,000 men dead, wounded, or missing. Facing the aftermath were the men, women, and children living in the village of Sharpsburg and on surrounding farms. In Too Afraid to Cry, Kathleen Ernst recounts the dramatic experiences of these Maryland citizens--stories that have never been told--and also examines the complex political web holding together Unionists and Secessionists, many of whom lived under the same roofs in this divided countryside.

Kathleen A. Ernst, a Maryland native, is a graduate of Antioch University and the author of numerous articles in magazines such as Civil War Times Illustrated and America's Civil War. She lives in Wisconsin. Too Afraid to Cry" is written from "the bottom up", so to speak. It starts and ends from the individual citizen or soldier's perspective. What Gen So-n-So did might be noted to provide context, but the focus is always on making clear the hell that war is, and the hell these Western Maryland people lived through. This stuff tends to get whitewashed in Civil War literature.

Book Overview In Too Afraid to Cry, Kathleen Ernst recounts th. .

By Kathleen A. First study of the Antietam campaign from the perspective of civilians. Whatever their experiences may have been, their stories-told for the first time in Too Afraid to Cry-are no less important than those of the soldiers who marched through their cornfields, and are essential to a full understanding of the Civil War. And, for those who think war is a glorious affair, this will reaffirm the point that war is something to be avoided at all costs as it affects not just soldiers, but the innocent inhabitants caught up in its fury.

The book's flaws come not so much with its concept as in its execution. Ernst contributes to this positive development by showing how the people of Maryland's Washington and Frederick Counties coped with the havoc that enveloped them in September 1862. Most notably, Ernst tends to ramble, and her descriptions of people and events often seem little more than swirls of vignettes and quotations.

Talk about Too Afraid to Cry: Maryland Civilians in the Antietam Campaign


Magis
Usually we get history from the top down, or wartime history from the soldier or commander perspective. This book is a civilian perspective from a very unique location along the Mason-Dixon Line in western Maryland. I ordered this because my ancestors lived in the area at the time and was fascinated by the entire book. Quite well researched and a really good read, even if you aren't into the military history of the day. All Americans should read this account to learn of the sacrifices made by both sides during the Civil War. Highly recommended. Can't wait to visit Antitam now.

Truly excellent. This book is beautifully written, impressively researched, and a good accessible read. The chapters about the battle and its aftermath are riveting. I appreciated the inclusion of African-American perspectives (it would have been nice to have an African American among the photos on the cover, since several who lived on the battlefield were photographed). Anyway, I say this as someone who finds Civil War military history pretty much a big yawn. This book really delivers on its mission to tell the civilians' story, and does it in a compelling way.

Fascinating account of the impact of the Civil War on civilians in Western Maryland, primarily during the Antietam battle and aftermath but also more broadly during the Civil War years. Well researched and well written. This type of history deserves much more attention. It was hard not to think of the modern stories like these now occuring now in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Wow! Another book that tells of the dread and horrors that the Civil War brought to the civilians, and it is done as perfectly as one could ever hope. It is written in a lively manner and was very hard to put down. Based totally on facts, using diary and journal accounts, the writer brings the reader right in to the middle of the Maryland conflict, from the trepidation the citizens felt weeks before the battle at Sharpsburg/Antietam as the Rebs entered their border state, through the battle itself, and finally how they dealt with the after affects of the worst one day battle ever fought on American soil.
We here in the 21st century cannot fathom what our ancestors went through - what they felt...the aptly titled "Too Afraid to Cry" will give the reader at least a tiny idea of what life was like for the folks living in Maryland in the early Fall of 1862.
Wow is right!

Seldom do we get a chance to read about civilians and their stories through out the Antietam Campaign. This book gives us a great look at just what the hardships Maryland civilians had to endure. Authors Kathleen Ernst and Ted Alexander have asembled an interesting book that features Confederate and Union early concentrations, skirmishes and battles around the Sharpsburg and Frederick areas that bring to life civilian response. Popular families such as the Prys, Pipers and Millers living in the area of Sharpsburg during the battle are covered along with many others that explain the ordeals and horrors these families faced while war was at their doorstep. Interesting and facinating the text explains the unknown hardships that civilians had to face while battles took place and how also many tried to survive after the bloody engagements. One can not just read about the battle and get a full perspective on the campaign without considering reading about the civilians and I highly recommend this book! 5 STARS!
Qumen
Comprehensive and personal take on civilians and soldiers surrounding our nation's bloodiest day. Shows the negative and positive aspects of people and their human nature under great duress. Well written.

Once you start it you can't put it down, and I've heard the same from those who borrowed it from me. It's a different perspective of the 1862 Maryland Campaign.
Good
