    schema:description "The 1988 Pulitzer Prize winner now boasts some seven hundred pictures, including a hundred and fifty color images and twenty-four full-color maps. McPherson has selected all the illustrations, including rare contemporary photographs, period cartoons, etchings, woodcuts, and paintings, carefully choosing those that best illuminate the narrative. He has also written extensive captions (some 35,000 words in all, virtually a book in themselves), many of which offer new information and interpretations that enhance the original text. The text itself, streamlined by McPherson, remains a fast-paced narrative that captures two decades of contentious American history, from the Mexican War to Lee's surrender at Appomattox. Along with a chronicle of the war itself -- the battles, the strategic maneuvering on both sides, the politics, and the personalities -- readers will find McPherson's commentary on such matters as the slavery expansion issue in the 1850s, the origins of the Republican Party, the causes of secession, internal dissent and anti-war opposition in the North and the South, and the reasons for the Union's victory."@en ;
