The Library of Congress houses the world’s largest collection of printed material on the American Civil War. Drawing on this unparalleled archive, The Library of Congress Illustrated Timeline of the Civil War is an authoritative and engaging narrative of the four-year conflict that determined the course of American history.
A detailed chronological timeline of the war captures the harrowing intensity of 19th-century warfare in firsthand accounts from soldiers, nurses and front-line journalists. The book is filled with features: speech drafts in Lincoln’s own hand, quotes from the likes of Frederick Douglass and Robert E. Lee, and portraits of key soldiers, politicians and civilians—North and South, slave and free—who are not covered in standard textbooks. And Library of Congress military historian Margaret E. Wagner puts a fascinating array of photographs, maps, illustrations and battlefront sketches into context in a text that guides us through the conflict month by month and battle by battle.
The Library of Congress Illustrated Timeline of the Civil War is an alternately haunting, vibrant and enlightening road map back to a defining period in our nation’s history.
