    This is an excellent overview of the Civil War. I picked up the book because I saw it displayed in the new book section of the library. (Well done librarians!) While I would have appreciated even more visuals, this book placed the major (and many of the minor) events of the events of the American Civil War in chronological order. This book helps the reader realize that life did not stop during the Civil War, that people continued living albeit living lives significantly altered due to this horri This is an excellent overview of the Civil War.

This book helps the reader realize that life did not stop during the Civil War, that people continued living albeit living lives significantly altered due to this horrible war. I also learned a few new things, such as the death of Confederate President Davis' 5 year old son in 1864. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of history. (The only negative is that it is so heavy! :D)
