Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Freelance writer Fredriksen has compiled a noteworthy resource on the U.S. civil war. Similar to his award-winning Revolutionary War Almanac(Facts On File, 2006), it is divided into two parts: the first is a chronology of the daily actions in the war, while the second is a biographical examination of each side's generals. In the first part, the daily reports begin with the year 1860 and run through 1865. Varying in length from one paragraph to one page, the entries include action from several fronts: diplomacy, politics, naval action, Northern, Southern (below the Mason Dixon Line), Southwestern (Texas, California, and Indian territories), and Western (west of the Shenandoah Valley). The alphabetical listing in the second part of the book offers information on over 100 officers involved in the conflict. As commanders of their respective armed services, Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis are also included. Each officer gets a brief synopsis of his life leading up to the war, followed by more detailed description of his involvement in the war (about one to two pages long). A concluding paragraph summarizes their lives after the war. Photographs provided show engravings and other pictures of the war and generals in uniform. A ten-page bibliography provides additional places to look for information. Lastly, a small 15-page map section shows many of the major battles of the Civil War.

School Library Journal

Gr 6 Up -This attractive volume highlights military facets of the conflict. Chronology entries vary in length but give detailed information on major battles. Politics and diplomacy are mentioned but only as supplemental to the military focus. The second part of the book is a biographical dictionary containing 107 sketches of military and naval figures, most with photographs. Each of these entries has a short bibliography, and names are cross-referenced. Black-and-white maps and a detailed bibliography including current publications on the Civil War conclude the volume. This work's outstanding feature is the almanac. It lists each day's naval encounters and events in the North, South, West, and Southwest, as applicable, dramatizing the national scope of the war as nothing else can. The sheer magnitude of the chronology (it is more than 600 pages) is impressive. Students can use this volume as a handy ready reference or for in-depth reports.-Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL
