A Battlefield Atlas of the Civil War based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The collaborative work of author, educator, and Civil War authority Craig Symonds and expert cartographer William Clipson, this seventh printing of Gettysburg: A Battlefield Atlas features an informative text enhanced 24 three-color maps and 30 black/white historical photographs. Compact, comprehensive, 'user friendly', and providing a narrative history along with a complete cartographic display of the famed American Civil War battle of Gettysburg, this 103-pages (plus an additional page offering author biographical synopses) battlefield atlas is a superb supplement for students of the battle rendering the events of the engagement both vividly depicted and comprehensibly understandable. Another very high recommended atlas for personal, academic, and community library American Civil War History reference collections from the team of Symonds and Clipson is A Battlefield Atlas Of The Civil War, Third Edition, (1877853259, $26.95, 128 pages, 51 two-color maps, 32 photos).
