Text is clean and complete. No torn, loose or missing pages. Presentation page has a twentieth-century inscription. This is a massive illustrated history of the Civil War.
At 43 chapters and almost 1000 pages in length, it covers everything from the causes of the war and the firing on Fort Sumter to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. The author writes in the Preface. It has been my aim to present a continuous narrative covering the entire area of operations, both military and naval, and free from those interruptions which in general history are unavoidable. I have endeavored to carry the reader with me over sea and land, wherever the sounds of war were heard, and to present to him in a series of vivid and faithful pictures the events which marked the progress of the great struggle.Of the movements of the hostile forces, and of the commanders under whom at different times and different places these movements were made, I have expressed my opinion with great freedom, awarding praise or blame as truth or justice seemed to call for the one or the other. I do not expect that my judgments will find favor from all classes of readers, but I know that they are the judgments of an unbiased mind, solicitous for the truth and constrained only by the irresistible logic of facts. My information I have drawn from sources too numerous to be mentioned in detail. Contemporary magazines and pamphlets, private letters and documents of various kinds which have been kindly placed at my disposal all have been consulted with more or less profit. In cases of doubt, where testimony was absent or conflicting, I have corresponded with some of the principal leaders in the strife; and the information thus derived from both Northern and Southern sources has been to me of incalculable value.
In addition to reams of text, the book also features numerous illustrations including engraved portraits and scenes and battle maps. If you dont have this wonderful old book in your Civil War library yet, now would be a great time to get it.
