Civil War Sites, 2nd: The Official Guide to the Civil War Discovery Trail (Civil War Sites)

This is an excellent guide for people visiting the battlefields. You get a detailed overview of each battlesite, list of events and location maps by state. The driving directions are invaluable, since many of the sites are now lost within the urban sprawl. Anything sponsored by the CWPT is a must read for anyone interested in the American Civil War.

I never knew there were so many civil war sites/battlefields. Several are close by that I didn't know about till I recieved the book. If the American Civil War fascinates you as much as it does me, you'll find this book a MUST HAVE!! Awesome investment..

Have not had time to sit and really read all of this book. We ordered it and used it as a travel reference on a recent drive trip thru the Southeast. For that purpose, it was perfect. This book includes interesting facts, maps, directions (with exit numbers) and a brief description of the Civil War historical sites in the area. We found some interesting places that we may have otherwise passed up. We plan on having this book with us when we travel other areas of the USA.

This book is especially informative for the Civil War buff. It contains valuable information for those who would like additional information about the campaigns, providing easy-to-read maps and discussions of the rationale behind the campaigns. I found it very useful not only as a reference piece but as a thoroughly enjoyable read. I recommend it highly.

Is a great book for all those that love traveling to battle sites. Being and old soldier myself the ability to be able to stand where those that gave all is a honor. I enjoy the fact the book provides the ability to research more in detail the battle as they lay out.

We plan to make a Civil War Trail trip in the next few upcoming years and judged this book to be essential to fully appreciating what happened in that great war.
