1001 Things Everyone Should Know About the Civil War by Frank E. Vandiver

The Civil War lasted four years and consumed the American continent, spreading from Maine to California, Florida to Wyoming, and even into Canada. More than a million men--a quarter of all men of fighting age--were killed, or wounded, or died of disease.Every imaginable resource was expended in the war effort, and at its end, a new Union arose from the wreckage of the old. In1001 Things Everyone Should Know About the Civil War, noted historian Frank Vandiver presents 1,001 key facts about the war that tore the Union apart. Entertaining, moving, and informative, this book will delight both the uninitiated and the hard-core Civil War buff with its accessible and detailed information. Complete with 182 black-and-white photographs, and including facts both large and small--from the major battles of the war to the recreational tendencies and hardships of both the Yankee and Confederate armies--1001 Things Everyone Should Know About the Civil Waroffers a fascinating look at the valor and squalor of an important part of Americas history. It includes the answers to such questions as: What was the twenty-slave law and why did it divide the Confederacy? (See #419) What circumstances nearly forced Robert E. Lee to resign in 1863? (See #520) What was Grants crusher strategy? (See #722) What did Booth yell as he jumped onto the stage at Fords Theatre? (See #833) How did the Confederate Army win the last battle of the war?
