"Yanks, Rebs, and Tories, How the

British Spied, Pried, and Scandalized

their way into the American Civil

War"

by CHRISTINE TRENT

Learn about British involvement in the American Civil War. In 1815, the United States kicked Great Britain out of its borders for the second, and final, time.  Or did they? Although officially adopting a position of neutrality in the escalating tensions of 1861, the British government observed America’s internal dissensions with great interest and impatience while it waited to recognize the Confederacy at its earliest opportunity.  The U.S. minister to Great Britain, Charles Francis Adams, Sr., was just as impatient to prevent parliament from doing so.

From the Trent Affair to commerce raiders, Great Britain was a constant irritant in an already painful and bloody war.  However, it would soon be Great Britain who found herself on the receiving end of pain and punishment. Join Christine Trent, author of the Lady of Ashes historical mystery series, as she spins out the story of British involvement in the U.S. Civil War, a remarkable tale full of skullduggery, sabotage, and covert mischief.
