Summary

America's bloodiest war was fought, not against a foreign enemy, but family against family, brother against brother, North versus South. After five long years of battlefield carnage, the institution of slavery was finally abolished and the Union preserved. In the process, many of America's now legendary figures rose to prominence—President Abraham Lincoln and Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee among them. Here in the full-color Civil War, Revised Edition, all of the human conflicts of that war, both political and military, on land and at sea, are described in vivid and sometimes harrowing detail. Readers will also gain an understanding of the military tactics and innovative equipment used during battle.
