My Review of the Book
Over 150 years ago the United States erupted in a civil war. There is much to learn about that time and this is just the book for anyone fascinated by Civil War history and all the details that go with that time period. If you are searching for a Civil War ancestor, you need to learn about all aspects of the war so you can put their life in perspective of the events of that time.
This weighty book would make a good doorstop, that is if you could tear yourself away from it long enough to use it in that way. What I’m saying is, there is a lot of history packed into this book. Great for dipping into and browsing, but it has an index for returning to information that you found earlier.
The American Civil War 365 Days is a book that Civil War buffs and those with a casual interest will enjoy soaking up historical facts. It was great for that, but when I checked the index for a specific topic, it sometimes wasn’t there. You can only cram so much into one book, even one as large as this one is. It would not be my #1 source for reference on the Civil War.

What other reviewers have to say about the book:
“I added this to my classroom civil war collection as soon as I saw finished reading it. Recommended. ” (review by Evan McMillan)
“Excellent information and photos.” (review by G.J. Durst)
“The division of the book into topics helped me analyze different general aspects of conflict and concern at the time, and the phenomenal selection of photos, maps, drawings, cartoons humanized the time period and the war itself and made it very real. I borrowed the book from the library, couldn’t put it down, rushed right out and bought it.” (review by nsx12 on Amazon)
