This volume contains 821 maps, 106, engravings and 209 drawings. From its front flap: "After the Civil War, the U.S. Government and the Army embarked on a landmark joint endeavor. For the first time in American history, the federal government itself - led by the Army - compiled a military history. The history was composed of all of the official military documents from both sides of the war, and it proved to be a massive production. It was called 'War of the Rebellion: A compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies' and referred to as the 'Official Records', or 'O.R.'. It contained official reports, letters, telegrams, strength returns, and casualty lists, covering all theaters throughout the war. The Army then got together the official military maps to supplement the O.R. This was called 'The Atlas to Accompany the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies'. The maps had been drawn during the war by engineers, draftsmen, and sometimes even generals themselves for actual military use. Only a few maps, drawn later by cartographers, were added for historical purposes. Tactical and strategic maps indicate troop dispositions; defense lines, redoubts, and fortifications of key sites are clearly shown. Terrain maps often contain picket positions, signal stations, and lines of march. Some are rough sketches, some cartographic masterpieces. All are informative and reveal the knowledge - or lack of knowledge - that both sides possessed about the terrain, and the strength and the position of opposing troops. The index to maps is an invaluable aid. It refers to campaigns and battles, rivers, creeks, lakes, bays, islands, bridges, fords, ferries, landings, roads, railroads, mountains, towns, churches, forts, and much more. In this reprint, the index the and maps are conveniently bound in one volume. Here, in brief, is a completely indispensable tool for both historian and Civil War buff, reproduced with absolute precision and fidelity."… (mais)

821 maps, 106 engravings, 209 drawings. Lent to Don S.

A huge book slightly under 14" by 17" but a good size given the maps that have to be shrunk to fit. ( )

Endlessly fascinating for browsing, and still the BIGGEST book I own. Even though I have long recovered from my brief infatuation with reading about the civil war, I still drag this book out sometimes and find myself lost in it for a while. By the way, I think the Civil War has broken even by now. The tourism income and dollars from the Civil War industry have put more into the American economy (even accounting for the time value of money) than 5 years of brother-against-brother bloodshed took out of it! Why are we so fascinated by the Civil War anyway? Why do we treat it as a tale of dedication, patriotism, and courage rather than the national tragedy it was (and still is)? ( )

Some printing errors, it seems to me, and an index I've still not figured out. But still nice to have around to accompany Foote's narrative.
