520 2  "When Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address in 
       1863, he had broader aims than simply rallying a war-weary
       nation. Lincoln realized that the Civil War had taken on a
       wider significance-that all of Europe and Latin America 
       was watching to see whether the United States, a 
       beleaguered model of democracy, would indeed 'perish from 
       the earth.' In The Cause of All Nations, distinguished 
       historian Don H. Doyle explains that the Civil War was 
       viewed abroad as part of a much larger struggle for 
       democracy that spanned the Atlantic Ocean, and had begun 
       with the American and French Revolutions. While battles 
       raged at Bull Run, Antietam, and Gettysburg, a parallel 
       contest took place abroad, both in the marbled courts of 
       power and in the public square. Foreign observers held 
       widely divergent views on the war-from radicals such as 
       Karl Marx and Giuseppe Garibaldi who called on the North 
       to fight for liberty and equality, to aristocratic 
       monarchists, who hoped that the collapse of the Union 
       would strike a death blow against democratic movements on 
       both sides of the Atlantic. Nowhere were these monarchist 
       dreams more ominous than in Mexico, where Napoleon III 
       sought to implement his Grand Design for a Latin Catholic 
       empire that would thwart the spread of Anglo-Saxon 
       democracy and use the Confederacy as a buffer state. 
       Hoping to capitalize on public sympathies abroad, both the
       Union and the Confederacy sent diplomats and special 
       agents overseas: the South to seek recognition and support,
       and the North to keep European powers from interfering. 
       Confederate agents appealed to those conservative elements
       who wanted the South to serve as a bulwark against radical
       egalitarianism. Lincoln and his Union agents overseas 
       learned to appeal to many foreigners by embracing 
       emancipation and casting the Union as the embattled 
       defender of universal republican ideals, the "last best 
       hope of earth." A bold account of the international 
       dimensions of America's defining conflict, The Cause of 
       All Nations frames the Civil War as a pivotal moment in a 
       global struggle that would decide the survival of 
       democracy."--|cProvided by publisher. 
520    "The Civil War is most often understood as an internal 
       conflict, one fought by American soldiers over issues 
       uniquely American in origin and consequence. But in The 
       Cause of All Nations, distinguished historian Don H. Doyle
       reframes our understanding of the Civil War, describing it
       as a conflict that was shaped by international forces--and
       which had major international repercussions. Doyle shows 
       that, rather than being an internal struggle, the Civil 
       War hinged on the support of nations across the seas, 
       especially in Europe. Both the North and the South looked 
       to Europe for backing, and the Confederacy in particular 
       depended on Britain and France recognizing it as a 
       legitimate nation, which would allow for commercial 
       treaties, loans, and even military aid. Indeed, 
       representatives of the North and the South went so far as 
       to adapt their ideologies to the expectations of European 
       leaders, in the hopes of garnering much-needed support; at
       a certain point late in the war, the Confederacy even 
       considered abolishing slavery in an attempt to win over 
       French and British rulers. Lincoln quickly learned to 
       reframe the Union's argument in order to win over 
       potential allies. Instead of framing the debate around the
       unconstitutionality of the South's secession, his speeches
       began to highlight the importance of preserving the Union 
       and freeing the slaves, an approach with allowed Lincoln 
       to win the support of the European public. The United 
       States became the 'Great Republic, ' an embattled defender
       of liberty, equality, and self-government and, in 
       Lincoln's poignant words, the 'last best hope of earth.' A
       bold account of the international dimensions of one of 
       America's most defining conflicts, The Cause of All 
       Nations offers an important new way of understanding the 
       Civil War"--|cProvided by publisher.
