"A delightfully good volume that provides a clear, concise, and comprehensive presentation of the Civil War in all its complexity. Had only such a volume been available when I was in school!"--Terrence J. Winschel, Historian, Vicksburg National Military Park, and author of Triumph & Defeat: The Vicksburg Campaign
"As a life-long student of the war, I found this unique history of the period to be a first-rate publication. Through its innovative layout and creative design, Gaffney provides both seasoned enthusiasts and newcomers with an opportunity to learn about this tragic moment in American history. If, as the historian David McCullough once wrote, " History is who we are and why we are the way we are," then this publication does a wonderful job of telling us where we came from as a people."--Jim Lighthizer, President and CEO of the Civil War Trust
"For the reader, it will be easy to comprehend how and why the American Civil War still has an impact on our lives today, and is a perfect companion to take along while visiting one of our treasured battlefield parks."--John Heiser, Ranger/Historian, Gettysburg National Military Park
"This book takes readers on a comprehensive journey through the defining event in American history. Story by story, the authors describe the causes, conduct, and consequences of the Civil War in a text that is rich in content and accessible to scholars, teachers, students, and the general public."--Brent D. Glass, Historian
"Through compelling stories and carefully researched interpretations, the authors explain, analyze, and spark curiosity about the Civil War. The unique calendar format invites teachers, students, and families to discuss the multiple causes, the immediate impact, and the long-term legacy of our nation in conflict."--Cathy Gorn, Executive Director, National History Day
