Abstract:

The New York Times, established in 1851, was one of the few newspapers with correspondents on the front lines throughout the Civil War. The Complete Civil War collects every article written about the war from 1861 to 1865, plus select pieces before and after the war and is filled with the action, politics, and personal stories of this monumental event. From the first shot fired at Fort Sumter to the surrender at Appomattox, and from the Battle of Antietam to the Battle of Atlanta, as well as articles on slavery, states' rights, the role of women, and profiles of noted heroes such as Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, the era comes alive through these daily first-hand accounts. More than 600 of the most crucial and interesting articles in the book -- typeset and designed for easy reading. More than 104,000 additional articles on the DVD-ROM -- every article the Times published during the war. A detailed chronology highlights articles and events of interest that can be found on the disk. Illustrated with hundreds of maps, historical photographs, and engravings.
