Battles and Leaders of the Civil War

The 388 articles by 226 authors are accompanied by 197 well-drawn maps, nearly 1500 engraved illustrations, statistical summaries, orders of battle, and editorial notes inserted by Johnston and Buel. The engravings are among the best related to Civil War history and were done by a team of artists and illustrators that includes Edwin Forbes, Winslow Homer, Allan C. Redwood, William I. Sheppard, James E. Taylor, and Alfred R. Waud.
