Overview

For four straight years, the people of the United States fought against one another in a brutal civil war that resulted in the deaths of approximately 620,000 men. Between 1861 and 1865, more Americans died during this bloody conflict than in all other U.S. wars combined. With fighting across the South and in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Missouri, and Kentucky, some battles proved to be key in the overall outcome of the war. The clashes between the Union and the Confederates ranged from minor skirmishes to full-scale engagements that sometimes stretched across battlefields measuring miles in length. These battles tested the limits of endurance and revealed incredible displays of honor by the armies on both sides of the conflict.

The Civil War: A Nation Divided offers a unique perspective on the Civil War, the bloodiest conflict in America's history. Featuring primary source material, each title in this informative new set details a specific topic of life during the war and its immediate aftermath.
