Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the war that turned brother against brother — from the birth of the Confederacy to Reconstruction. Here is a dramatic, photo-filled guide to the war that split the Union. Eyewitness Civil War includes everything from the issues that divided the country, to the battles that shaped the conflict, to the birth of the reunited states. Rich, full-color photographs of rare documents, powerful weapons, and priceless artifacts plus stunning images of legendary commanders, unsung heroes, and memorable heroines combine with stories of courage, adventure, and defiance to paint an unforgettable portrait of the American Civil War. See Fort Sumter's battle-torn flag, a beardless Lincoln, the tools of a Civil war surgeon, and the Confederate capital in ruins. Learn how to fire a cannon, the secrets of the Underground Railroad, about the Confederacy's First Lady, and what soldiers carried into battle. Discover who plotted Lincoln's assassination, where the last Confederates surrendered, what happened to Jefferson Davis, and why the North won the war, and much, much more!

Synopsis:

This striking visual representation of the war between the states discusses how the war came about, examines some of the major battles, details how the Underground Railroad was utilized by slaves, and reveals the aftermath of the war. Includes period photos and photos of Civil War artifacts.
