Format: Paperback
Mr. Lincoln's City: An Illustrated Guide To The Civil War Sites Of Washington by U.S. Army Major General Richard M. Lee (Retired) is enhanced with 15 maps and 130 historical photographs as it offers the reader a series of major tours throughout downtown Washington, DC, to 80 sites that were significant to the events occurring between 1861 and 1865 during the American Civil War. There were a total of 68 forts encircling Washington, which the Union forces utilized as a major war base with its rail net and staging areas. This proved critically important as Confederate forces approached the city when the great battles took place in neighboring Virginia to the detriment of the Union Army. Here land marked for the onsite visitor as well as the armchair traveler are the Washington Monument slaughterhouse, the fetid creeks and canals, the sick, the wounded and the dying lying in hospitals strewn across the city. This is also the place where President Lincoln brought his forces to final victory, preserved the union, and resulted in Washington becoming the premier city of a reunited republic -- an unassailable position it has held down to the present day. Mr. Lincoln's City is an enthusiastically recommended addition to American History and Civil War History reference collections, as well as an ideal resource for planning a Civil War oriented tour of Washington, DC.

For those folks who want to see what DC looked like during the Civil War along with a short history of those locations, this is the book for you. While much of the old city has been replaced by newer buildings, it is interesting to see where certain events took place, and to see some that are still standing such as the Surratt boarding house and the National Theater where Tad Lincoln saw Alladin and the location of Sewards home on the night he was attacked.

I am a Mary Lincoln presenter and wanted to get a feel for Washington City during the war. The photos in this book are wonderful with great detail and explanations.
