Product Description

Praise for THE CIVIL WAR BATTLEFIELD GUIDE " The Civil War Battlefield Guide remains the best single source of information on the 384 principal battles of the Civil War. The authors who contributed constitute a veritable who's who of Civil War scholars. The battle maps offer stunning visuals for appreciating the battles in relation to contemporary roads and highways. If there is one published authority for understanding this country's Civil War battlefields (and there is), this is it." Dwight T. Pitcaithley, National Park Service, Chief Historian (retired) "Landscapes speak to us, but only when we are informed. This is no ordinary reprinting of a Civil War battlefield guide; it marks the sesquicentennial by allowing informed tourists, as readers first, to be ushered through these sacred sites by some of our most important historians. Their voices and their insights, not to mention their narrative skill, remind us of why these landscapes forever move us as they educate us about our most desperate and transformative national experience." David W. Blight, Yale University, and author of A Slave No More and Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory "Everyone interested in the Civil Warand especially those committed to preserving its battlefieldswill relish the insightful commentary and crisp prose in this useful guide. Read it, and then keep it in the car for handy reference!" Carol Reardon, George Winfree Professor of American History, Penn State University An essential reference for anyone interested in the Civil War, The Civil War Battlefield Guide covers all of the 384 principal battles designated in the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission Report. Leading historians, including James M. McPherson, Stephen W. Sears, Edwin C. Bearss, and Gary W. Gallagher, contributed essays. Frances H. Kennedy wrote summaries of more than three hundred battles.
