While Frances Kennedy's original guide described 60 major Civil War battlefields from Fort Sumter to Appomattox, this second edition covers all of the 384 "principal battlefields" designated in the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission Report. The new book also features 83 four-color maps covering the most important battles. As in the first edition, the essays here are authoritative and concise, written by leading historians like James M. McPherson, Stephen W. Sears, Edwin C. Bearss, James I. Robinson Jr., and Gary W. Gallager.
"The authors who contribute 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."óDwight Pitcaithley
