In addition to military history, such as the battles of New Orleans, Vicksburg and Gettysburg, and Sherman's march to the sea, cultural subjects are discussed. Sketches of the lives of slaves, hymns and folksongs, and civil war era folktales are interspersed with the story of the progress of the war.
