Civil War Almanac (Almanacs of American Wars)

by John C. Fredriksen

From the publisher:
The Civil War was a defining event in U.S. history—a time when Americans fought against one another to decide the fate of the nation.

The new Civil War Almanac contains a detailed, day-by-day chronology of the events and people of this monumental war, along with an A-to-Z dictionary offering biographical information on leading military and political figures involved in the conflict.

Written by the author of the award-winning Revolutionary War Almanac, this comprehensive reference also contains numerous illustrations and maps, an appendix, and an extensive bibliography for further research.

John C. Fredriksen holds a Ph.D. in American history from Providence College. He works as a freelance writer and researcher, and is the author of American Military Leaders and Facts On File's Biographical Dictionary of Modern World Leaders.
