The American heritage picture history of the Civil War by Bruce Catton( Book )

83 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 6,726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Bruce Catton's unsurpassed narrative, evoking the sweep and drama of a nation at war, provides the basis for The American Heritage New History of the Civil War, which includes more than 800 important contemporary photographs and sketches and magnificent paintings. The Civil War's battles and campaigns are painstakingly illustrated in three-dimensional maps that guide the reader through the four years of the struggle. With illustrations that range from photographs by Mathew Brady and sketches by soldiers at the front, to famous paintings by Winslow Homer, the book boasts an extraordinary breadth of pictures and artifacts culled from across the nation. This richly textured tapestry is made complete by the words of men and women who actually witnessed the events. From the journal entry of a Confederate soldier departing for battle and the letter an African-American soldier scrawled on the back of his wife's letter to him, to some of the best-known documents written in the very hand of Abraham Lincoln, each page of this book allows the participants to speak for themselves

Mr. Lincoln's Army by Bruce Catton( Book )

49 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 4,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of Lincoln's famous Army of the Potomac during the early years of the Civil War, when it was under the command of the dashing General George B. McClellan. Clearly a man of destiny, McClellan quickly became obsessed with the idea -- and the country and his troops shared his view, for a time -- that he was divinely chosen as the instrument of the Republic's salvation. But he failed to understand either the President's problems with respect to the army or the fateful significance of the war itself, and at last he was removed from command. But the living story here, viewed through McClellan's command, is that of the army itself. It is an account gathered from diaries, letters, and published reports of the ordinary foot soldiers, who discovered that their skylarking "picture book war" was grim and deadly
