Description

Most books and articles about the Civil War cover the subject chronologically and examine the war as one continuous event, but Civil War State by State looks at the war from the perspective of the forty-five states and territories that existed during the period. It looks at the politics of each; the battles fought; the regiments raised; the famous people, soldiers, sailors and very occasional airmen who played their part. Richly illustrated with maps and photographs, this book will provide a fund of knowledge and make a valuable addition to any historian's library.
