"It should . . . be kept in the glove compartment of every tourist with an interest in American history." ?The Chicago Sun Times

"[It] has the predictable major listings, but the beauty of the book lies in its obscure citations." ?Southern Partisan

"This storehouse of information will be enthusiastically welcomed by Civil War buffs at home and on the road. . . . This volume is highly recommended." ?Library Journal
