More Information
This is the first Civil War atlas to depict multiple aspects of the war's action, month by month, from April 1861 through May 1865. Fifty full-color maps--one for each month of the war--convey as never before a sense of the war's progression on all fronts--battles, sieges, infantry campaigns, naval operations, cavalry raids, and even shifts of national frontiers. One set of additional maps provides background into the political state of the nation as it headed into the war; another set covers the war as it was fought in the western reaches of the country. The text on facing pages supports each map with extra facts and figures, while the atlas's big 14 x 10 format allows for exceptional line clarity, color, and detail.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
"There is nothing like this atlas, which illustrates with great clarity the month-by-month political changes of the Civil War. It makes a noteable contribution in allowing readers to look at the entire strategic landscape of the war, placing various events & movements in geographical context."
--Gary W. Gallagher, author of Lee & His Army in Confederate History

FEATURES:
* Fifty maps show the events, including relatively small engagements, that took place in the successive months of the war.

* Thirteen additional maps focus on the Far West theater.

* Six maps, beginning with November 1860, detail the political situation in the months leading up to the war's outbreak. They show such information as free and slave states; secessionist sentiment; and the results of the 1860 census and the presidential election of the same year.

* Events of each month, including such details as dates, place-names, commanders, and statistics on troop strength and casualties, are summarized in the text facing each map.

* Confederate and Union positions, as well as towns that were occupied, raided, or burned, are clearly marked.
