Bringing the world of the Civil War to your fingertips, Fandex presents a field guide to the battles, generals, causes and outcomes of America's national tragedy.
Who shaped and inspired the mighty Army of the Potomac? Where was Lee headed when his army unexpectedly collided with Union cavalry just west of Gettysburg? What news turned the 1864 election and carried Lincoln into his second term? Documented with a compelling selection of on-the-spot photographs, full-color prints, paintings and historical artifacts. Civil War finally lets you get it straight.
Combining 50 individually die-cut cards with full-color illustrations, plus hundreds of intriguing facts, stories, statistics, and trivia, Fandex is the newest breakthrough in information-packed, family publishing.
Civil War: An illustrated cultural history of the Civil War, is told through the stories of the men and women who lived and fought it, and the battles, accoutrements, issues, and events that defined it.

The Shiloh card recounts a battle after which "the South never smiled again." Pickett's Charge, the Monitor vs. the Merrimac, Mathew Brady and Harriet Beecher Stowe's the American epic in the palm of your hand.
Fifty full-color die-cut cards offer a cultural history of the Civil War told through the stories of the men and women who lived and fought it, and the battles, accoutrements, issues, and events that defined it.
