Summary

Summary

As a defining event in the history of the United States, the Civil War has no equal. Civil War Battlefields Then and Now looks at the battlefields where it all took place, covering the broad sweep of events from the Southern capture of Fort Sumter to the Battles of Gettysburg and Appomattox. Historical illustrations and archival photographs of these sacred locations are compared with specially commissioned photographs of the battlefields as they are today, accompanied by descriptive and interesting text.
