Editorial Reviews

Civil War Times Illustrated
If you buy only one book this year on the Civil War, this should be it.
The Christian Science Monitor
A valuable guide to anyone who is interested in the war and hopes to avoid hours of circular and fruitless web navigation.
The New York Times
This new book offers much-needed help. The authors give equal time to both the battlefield and the homefront, where important social, cultural and racial changes occurred.
The New York Times
The reach of the Internet has opened a vast archive of Civil War material to the public. How does one maneuver through this information logjam? The Civil War on the Web offers much-needed help.
The Christian Science Monitor
It is hard to imagine that The Civil War on the Web won't be a valuable guide to anyone who is interested in the war and hopes to avoid hours of circular and fruitless web navigation.
The Journal Of Military History
In separating the wheat from the chaff, The Civil War on the Web provides a valuable service for those interested in the Civil War at all levels and sets the standard for the subsequent efforts that will inevitably follow.
