by David T. Gilbert and Jeff Shaara and Civil War Trust

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.
