Abstract:

"With this book, the editors propose to take you back to the years 1861-1865. Their intent is to enable you to live the suspense of the Civil War by having it unfold exactly as it did for newspaper readers in the nation's capital a hundred years ago. Your mirror of the past is the Evening star, the only surviving newspaper that covered the Civil War from its home front in Washington, D.C. The contents of this volume are made up of the 62 biggest stories of the Civil War period direct from the files of the Star of the 1860s. The format ... includes : a brief transitionary background to keep events in perspective; a reprint of the Star's reports on each big story ... ; illustrations from contemporary photographers, artists or engravers ... ; some views of the Washington homefront as it was reflected in the local news"--Page 1.
