Synopsis

This guide will prove indispensable on any expedition to explore Civil War history in America. Packed with more colour photographs and detailed colour maps than any other parks guidebook on the market, this handy, practical guide offers comprehensive information on the more than 384 sites recognized by the National Park Service as official battlefield locations, including the main Battlefield Sites, from Manassas to Appomattox Court House. In addition, this guide steers travellers to scores of additional little-seen and off-the-beaten path sites near the main battlefields. This guide helps travellers experience the Civil War chronologically, by location, or by campaign, experiencing the battles and skirmishes as the soldiers themselves would have encountered them: Follow Lee's march to Gettysburg or drive the Secession Trail through South Carolina. Walking tours provide visitors with detailed instructions, short histories, and a map so they can get out of the car and explore on foot. Each chapter is introduced by a map and a geographical profile. A history of individual parks is included, as well as books for further reading about specific figures or battles, completing each chapter.
