Each month from October 1860 to June 1865 is a one page. The monthly format is a few pages of contemporary observations about the weather and a daily table for the month. Table entries are date, day of the week, sunrise and sunset in Richmond and the DC temperature at 7 AM, 2 PM and 9 PM. Each day has a remarks entry for comments like overcast, amount of rain or an observation about the day. This may not seem to be much but it is invaluable in building a picture of the war.Read more ›
The only regret I have is that, as a Virginia resident in the area of the major battlefields, I know the weather in Richmond and DC often has very little resemblance to the weather in the Shenandoah or the Piedmont, EXCEPT for temperature. Here this book makes a great contribution. No one writing about events in this area of war can afford to overlook it in the future.
It would be nice if this were turned into a website, where the myriad of Civil War buffs could send any chance weather observations they come across in their reading and research to a central clearinghouse for use in the next edition
