Lasting from 1861 to 1865, the Civil War pitted brother against brother and resulted in the deaths of well over 600,000 soldiers. This reference book provides information about a variety of topics related to the war and its aftermath, including political issues, generals, battles and campaigns, armies, weapons and ammunition, naval vessels, medical treatments, and aspects of daily life in the military and on the homefront.
"Individual entries in these titles vary in length from single paragraphs to several pages. Numerous cross-references are helpful when making connections to related topics. B&W photographs, drawings, and maps contribute to the attractive appearance of the encyclopedias. Recommended."
