From the publisher:
This easy-to-use guide, completely revised and updated in clear, concise prose, features more than hundreds of sites in 31 states--solemn battlefields, gracious mansions, state parks, cemeteries, memorials, museums, and more.
Specific directions, hours, and contact information help to plan the trip; evocative description and detailed maps help orient you when you're there. Also, boxed sidebars highlight select people and events of the Civil War.
As of this posting, there is no news about the new guide on CWPT's web site. We therefore do not know what has changed in this update of the 1998 edition. A description of the 1998 edition (whish updated a 1996 release) appears below:
