Description

Indispensable must-reads for all Civil War buffs and historians, bringing together little-known and never before gathered first-hand accounts, articles, maps, and illustrations The first four volumes of Battles and Leaders of the Civil War, published in the late nineteenth century, became the best-selling and most frequently cited works ever published on the Civil War. Volume 5, assembled by the acclaimed military historian Peter Cozzens, carries on the tradition of its namesake, offering a dazzling new collection of fresh material written by military and civilian leaders, North and South, on a broad array of war-related topics. Featured articles include General Grant on the second battle of Bull Run, General Beauregard on the Shiloh campaign, General Sherman on the conference at City Point, Joshua Chamberlain on the Fredericksburg campaign, and many more. Also presented are dozens of maps and more than one hundred illustrations.show more

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 Journalshow more
