More Description


More Americans lost their lives in the Civil War than in all other wars America has entered. This book covers each of the 55 major battlefields, including those in the National Park System and many others in obscure locations. Each battle and campaign is described in an essay by an historian, and colour photographs show the battlefields are they are today. Detailed maps depict the movements of the armies as well as the topography of the land, and present-day landmarks are included to enable the reader to locate the sites and visualize the battles as they took place.
