An Illustrated History of the Civil War: Images of an American Tragedy

Front Cover
Time-Life Books, 2000 - History - 454 pages
"The Confederates surrendered at Appomattox more than five generations ago, but the Civil War continues to capture the American imagination. Millions fought in the conflict, and nearly 650,000 died. No event in the history of the United States has been as traumatic or as influential. Not only did the war wreak untold damage - destroying cities, ruining farmland, and leaving Americans with decades of social, political, and economic struggle - it also pushed to the fore issues with which the country still grapples, such as the rights of the individual and the power of the federal government."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
