Overview
Walk in the footsteps of history with this stunning volume that brings more than thirty Civil War battlefields to life.

From the "First Battle of Bull Run" to Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House four years later, this book celebrates the history and scenic beauty of these hallowed grounds in a large-format, beautifully produced volume.

Explore more than thirty Civil War battlefields-- from Antietam to Chancellorsville, Gettysburg to Shiloh--including the first five national battlefield parks preserved by veterans in the 1890s. Each battlefield features extensive photos of the key sites and monuments, as well as beautiful landscapes and historic archival photography. The essays enable the reader to understand each battlefield from a strategic perspective--its topography, geography, and military value--the battle's seminal moments, and its historical significance, and guide the reader on how best to tour the grounds on foot.

With maps, rarely seen archival photos, and stunning contemporary photography, this photo- and information-packed book is an inspirational bucket list for Civil War and history buffs, as well as those who wish to walk in the literal boot steps of American history.
