Horace Greeley was a 19th-century American writer, best known for being editor of the New York Tribune. Following the Union victory at Gettysburg in the Civil War, Greeley was asked to write a work outlining the entirety of the war. The book ‘American Conflict’ first appeared in 1864 and, in addition to providing details on battles and military officers, he included his own ideas of how to end and settle the disputes between the Union and Confederacy. Nevins calls this work a primary source” on the Civil War, from 1776 through the end of the Civil War, and Sabin calls this work a fair and certainly honest history of the events.”

 

However, Eicher’s perspective on this work is perhaps the most thorough.

Greeley covers “the entire history of the nation from 1776 to the second year of the Civil War… the final three years of the war and includes substantial material on emancipation and the crushing of the rebellion. Greeley traces the seeds of the war and includes a large cache of public documents and speeches to make his case. Composed during the war, the work is particularly notable for the presentation of predictions about the years to come, particularly regarding the slavery question.

 

Larned furthers that this work contains significant content on

“the growth of the emancipation movement…[and that] the book is unsparingly hostile to the South”.
