The four long years of Civil War saw fighting across America on an unprecedented scale, incurring losses to both sides to an extent never previously imagined. As the battles raged from east to west, from the First Battle of Bull run to Sherman's march to the Sea, no part of America remained untouched by the war, with families finding themselves torn and fighting on opposing sides. More than 150 years on, the war continues to fascinate us, and the key commanders, both presidents, and battle sites are forever enshrined in America's history.

The American Civil War book. Undoubtedly the most cataclysmic military struggle of the late nineteenth century, the American Civil War spanned four bloody years of fighting in which over 620,000 American soldiers and sailors lost their lives.

The American Civil War (also known by other names) was a civil war in the United States from 1861 to 1865, fought between the northern United States (loyal to the Union) and the southern United States (that had seceded from the Union and formed the Confederacy). The civil war began primarily as a result of the long-standing controversy over the enslavement of black people.

Undoubtedly the most cataclysmic military struggle of the late nineteenth century, the American Civil War spanned four bloody years of fighting in which over 620,000 American soldiers and sailors lost their lives. From its outbreak at Fort Sumter, South Carolina in April 1861 until its conclusion at the Appotomax Court House, more than 10,000 battles, engagements and skirmishes were recorded across the length and breadth of America. This book explores the political, historical and cultural significance of the American Civil War, examining its impact on the civilians and military personnel caught up in it.

Fortunately, another customer review mentions that there is a misprint in the Chronology at the start of the book. But there may be more than one misprint. It had appeared to me, from the Chronology, that the war continued into 1866 and that Lincoln was assassinated in 1865 but apparently came back as a zombie, because he was shot in 1866, by coincidence again on April 14th and again in Ford's theater. The first time, in 1865, he was assassinated; the second time, in 1866, he was only shot. This would be right, I guess, since you cannot kill a zombie, he being already dead. Lee surrenders in 1865, but apparently escapes and raises another army, only to surrender again on the same day of the year in 1866 and again at Appomattox Court House. However, Sherman's campaign in Georgia and the Carolinas takes place entirely in 1866, not in 1865 as I had thought. There, Sherman faces Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston. According to the Chronology, on April 18th, 1866, "Sherman and Johnston sign broad surrender agreement." How broad is indicated by the next entry, for April 21st, 1866; for it seems that this Johnston, not Andrew Johnson, becomes president (presumably of the United States because in the entry for May 10th, 1866, Jefferson Davis is still called "President Davis," of the Confederate States of course). As president of the United States, in an astounding about-face, Johnston rejects Sherman's terms, for we read, "President Johnston and cabinet reject Sherman's terms." We see then by filling in the gaps in the Chronology, by connecting the dots, what Johnston's game was: to accept the broad terms by which he becomes president of the United States and Sherman's superior and then, securely in the White House, to abrogate the surrender. I looked for some note about alternative history, but found none. No, I am afraid that the Chronology is just not reliable. There is more than one misprint. However, the rest of the book may be all right.

I bought this book on Amazon years ago, and still refer to it from time to time. It is very informative and doesn't push a particular partisan view. I happen to be familiar with authors Gallagher and Crick and know them to be experts. The battle map-diagrams are not elaborate but contain most of what is important, and I actually bought another copy so I could cut out the maps to use with other books on the subject.
