This is an oversized memorial volume of the Civil War filled with eyewitness accounts, stories and personal anecdotes of the Great Rebellion, as told by actual participants on both sides of the conflict, Union and Confederate. The narrative is accompanied by 250 illustrations made from actual photographs and drawings made on-site and/or as described by those who beheld the very scenes with their own eyes.

The Preface proclaims:

In presenting this volume to the public two important characteristics are worthy of special notice: The first is, that every article contained in it was written or the matter furnished by the living actors and witnesses of the events related, and that in no other form can these historical treasures be obtained.

The second is, that the truth only, without bitterness or malice, finds place upon its pages; that no word or expression is used that could not with propriety be read by a Northern or a Southern veteran, or to the children of either. The war of the sixties is over; but the price of its lesson was the blood and treasure it cost. The men of the North and the men of the South each thought differently; but the bravest and most sincere expressed their opinions on the battlefield, and in their glorious record the world recognizes the unparalleled valor of the American soldier.

More than 160 accounts are published in these pages, many for the first time ever. To give you a better idea of what this rare Civil War book has to offer, I have provided some helpful details below, starting with a summary of the book’s contents and followed by an equally thorough accounting of the 250 illustrations in the book. You can even see some of the historic images for yourself further down this page. I hope you’ll take a few moments to have a look.
