Battles of American Civil War 1861-1865 H/C
From 1861 to 1865, the Civil War ravaged the United States in a war that was different from any that had gone before. Improved artillery and musketry made the war more lethal, while new technology made transportation and communications important elements of battlefield strategy. The end result was a total war in which the Union and the Confederacy fought for their very survival. Battles of the American Civil War introduces 20 key battles from a conflict that lay waste the United States for four bloody years. Beginning with the Confederate capture of Fort Sumter (April 1861), and concluding with the capitulation of Petersburg, Virginia (April 1865), after an eight-month siege to Union forces, this book offers accessible and concise accounts of all the decisive battles of the American Civil War.
