Description

Charles Scribner’s Sons published these fine, concise histories of the various important campaigns of the Civil War between 1881 and 1887.

These volumes are important in that they are among the first to utilize the official records of the Union and Confederate armies, then being edited by the War Department. Further, most are written by a participant in the action described. As such, they are at once carefully analyzed history from primary sources and recollections of combatants. Most occupy important places in the early historiography of the campaigns.
