Overview

America's bloodiest war was not fought against a foreign enemy but pitted family against family, sibling against sibling, North versus South. After five long years of battlefield carnage, the institution of slavery was finally abolished and the Union preserved. In the process, many of America's now-legendary figures gained prominence-President Abraham Lincoln and Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee among them. Here in Civil War, Revised Edition, all aspects of that war-human and material, political and military, terrestrial and naval-are described in vivid and sometimes harrowing detail.

Chelsea House is proud to announce the updating and revision of its critically acclaimed America at War series. Features of this revised edition include the addition of color images and maps throughout, as well as extra sidebars and a new chapter on weapons and tactics used in the conduct of each war.
