The Civil War years, 1861 to 1865, marked the darkest days in United States history. It was a bloody conflict that pitted family against family, brother against brother and, of course, North against South. At the same time, though, the Civil War is one of the most fascinating periods in U.S. history. In The Civil War Vault: The War Between The States, the most memorable moments of the war are relived, from the first shot fired at Fort Sumter to Gen. Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox. In addition to an exciting storyline, readers will find fascinating removable replicas, including maps, letters, diaries and old daguerreotypes. These intriguing items include the plan for Charleston Harbor, President Abraham Lincoln's handwritten Emancipation Proclamation, a young girl's diary account of the siege of Atlanta, and a pardon card for a member of the Army of Northern Virginia. No Civil War buff should be without this "home archive" of the war's important battles and events!
