Description

Civil War Day by Day is a chronological history of the American Civil War. Get the clearest picture of this terrible conflict with analysis, illustrations, photographs, and maps.

The Civil War was the bloodiest conflict in U.S. history, claiming the lives of over 600,000 Americans between 1861 and 1865. The Civil War Day by Day is a chronological, month-by-month account of the conflict, allowing the reader to see key engagements at the First Bull Run, Antietam, Nashville, Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, Cold Harbor and Gettysburg, to name a few.

Illustrated throughout with hundreds of contemporary photographs and illustrations, this Civil War Day by Day also includes full-color maps of all the major battles and campaigns of the war. Each chapter includes features on the weapons that were used by both sides in the war, and the tactics that were employed on the battlefield.

The hardcover reference titles in the Day by Day series examine the evolution of wars in a chronological timeline, from the first skirmishes to the final battles. The fate of soldiers, battalions, armies, can change in the blink of an eye—with these comprehensive books, you can follow the conflicting sides in their strategy, weaponry, and policies.
