In so doing, The Enemy Within moves our understanding of corruption past the facile judgments that it was either all about politics or all about the Union cause's dissipated nature. As Smith notes in his introduction, not enough attention has been paid to the ways in which nonmilitary behaviors shaped the conflict.
