Sifting carefully through reports from newspapers, magazines, personal memoirs, and letters, Peter Cozzens' Volume 6 brings readers more of the best first-person accounts of marches, encampments, skirmishes, and full-blown battles, as seen by participants on both sides of the conflict. Alongside the experiences of lower-ranking officers and enlisted men are accounts from key personalities including General John Gibbon, General John C. Lee, and seven prominent generals from both sides offering views on "why the Confederacy failed." This volume includes one hundred and twenty illustrations, including sixteen previously uncollected maps of battlefields, troop movements, and fortifications.

Review quote

"Sizzling with essays, testimonies, and writings about individuals and events that affected conflict outcomes of the Civil War. . . . This rich compilation was gathered from original articles published immediately following the war. Far from dry, these are lively and obscure accounts."
--Foreword Magazine "Sure to interest readers as much as the original series and is highly recommended for public as well as academic libraries."
--Library Journal
