Historical Times Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Civil War

Front Cover

From the front inside cover: Historical Times Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Civil War is the most complete one-volume reference on the Civil War ever produced. More than 2,000 entries ranging in length from a few lines to several pages and arranged alphabetically-from "abatis" and "abolition" to "Zollicoffer" and "Zouave"--Cover every important aspect and individual of that momentous conflict. Military events, campaigns, and battles are thoroughly presented; but so, too are political, economic, and social developments that occurred during the war. Particularly useful is the system of cross-reference that indicated in each essay those names and terms which have their own entries.
