As the interest in and literature on the American Civil War grows in size and complexity each year, getting a firm hold of the subject has become almost impossible. This encyclopedia provides an essential service in combining an excellent array of battle maps and famous photographs with over 1600 concise (though sometimes too concise) entries on subjects that range from armories to nursing to Zouaves. Together, the text and images effectively capture the character and conduct of war and society. Although military subjects and biographies predominate, the encyclopedia includes numerous entries on politics, homefront mobilization, blacks and women in the war, the press, government programs in the North and South, technology, and soldiers' and relief organizations. These entries collectively show how the war touched virtually every aspect of American life. A volume of key documents of the era brings the war home with letters from officers describing battles, secession ordinances, critical speeches, and other primary sources. Appendixes listing executive officers and military leaders and a glossary of military terms add to the encyclopedia's usefulness. Although some bibliographies of individual entries are dated, the general bibliography compensates, and, more importantly, the entries are uniformly informed and clearly written. No other reference work compares with the range of this enterprise in canvassing the war. Every academic and major public library will need these volumes, edited by an independent scholar and the director of American history at the U.S. Air Force Base, respectively, as one of the quickest and surest routes into what historian James McPherson rightly identifies as "the most written-about subject in American history."DRandall M.

I read only the internet preview of this encyclopedia and found that, on page 1633, a common mistake was repeated: the photo is NOT of Joseph Reynolds (as captioned). Instead, it is of John Reynolds.
