This coffee table size book should remain under the coffee table. It is riddled with typos, inaccurate facts, mislabelled graphics and missing keynotes...a dissappointing "read" to say the least! I now know why it ended up on the bargain books rack. I have to assume the author is totally embarassed by the product his publisher put out under his name.

Book has a few inaccuracy in it. Here are a few. Page 21 Florida succeed from the union Jan 10,1861 (Book has Jan 10 1860). Page 149 Picture listed it as Confederate Navy (Actually it is the 9th Mississippi Infantry, Co B camped at Pensacola, Florida). Page 224 States these are dead Confederates Soldiers at the battle of Gettysburg, Pa (These are dead Confederates Soldiers at the battle of Antietam, MD in front of the Dunker church) Page 237 Map reference block 9 indicated battle of Mine Run, Virginia in on page 195. Page 195 is the Defense of Washington, DC. I believe if you are going to title the book The Historical Atlas of the Civil War the fact should be at least correct.
