Well organized, replete with examples, and yet easy to use. Each southern state archive is described with its record holdings. Sources of War Between the States & battlefield information are also provided. Interesting pictures add to the overall presentation. It can't be beat!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is much better than anticipated based on the description; I thought this book may be of limited help in my research, but was pleasantly surprised by the amount of information that proved to be helpful. Very nice book.
