Though few Americans might associate New York City with the Civil War, the city is filled with scores of monuments, historical sites, and resources related to those turbulent years, from Ulysses S. Grant's tomb to the supply fort on which the Statue of Liberty was built. Surprisingly, the city was largely sympathetic to the South; its citizens twice voted against Abraham Lincoln, and the 1863 Draft Rebellion forced General Meade to send troops to the city straight from the Gettysburg battlefield. The book features maps, photos, or other illustrations on nearly every page.
"Perfect for anyone interested in Civil War history and New York City. Additionally, it will provide walkers with a better appreciation for the many Civil War sites they pass on their travels in the Big Apple."—Civil War News
