How To Do Civil War Research by Richard A. Sauers


The demand by the general public for new material on the American Civil War has increased greatly in recent years. Information is being sought on projects ranging from researching the wartime service of ancestors to more accurate details for re-enacting and wargaming, to those who want to try their hand at writing a Civil War book or article.For many, a great deal of time, effort and money is often wasted before locating the proper resources, and many never do find information which may actually be readily available. Dr. Richard A. Sauers has drawn upon his many years of Civil War research experience to produce this handy guide that will aid in almost any Civil War project.Using government records, locating and utilizing specialized libraries and collections, touring battlefield sites, contacting and drawing on Civil War interest organizations, and making the best use of published collections are all covered, with many useful tips. Dr. Sauers is also very up-to-date on electronic Civil War sources, from Internet websites to massive collections that are now available and often easier to use in electronic form.
