Editorial Reviews

March 8, 1862: a date best remembered for the duel between the ironclads USS Monitor and the CSA Merrimack at Hampton Roads, was also the date of the Battle of Pea Ridge, Arkansas--the most important encounter in the Trans-Mississippi Theater--while in Washington, President Lincoln discussed the plans for the invasion of Richmond with General George McClellan, Commander of the Army of the Potomac. Until very recently warfare was, at best, a collection of independent actions by commanders in the field and their subordinates. Without modern communications general directives had to be interpreted on the battlefield--there was no way to check back with HQ. This important concept is made clear in The Civil War, Day by Day where we follow the action chronologically, seeing the different events happening on land, on sea, and in Washington and Richmond, often very independent of one another. Seven chapters follow the war between the North and the South, starting with the origins of Secession, the five years of bloody conflict, and finishing with the era of reconstruction that followed the end of hostilities in 1865.

Format: Hardcover
Ever wonder what happened on a certain day during the American Civil War? This book covers all four years of the war day by day and is broken down by each year. It gives a nice thumbnail sketch of the events of the day for both the Eastern and Western theaters. Of course certain narratives are longer than others (1 July 63). Very nicely illustrated with engraving and period photos!

This review is from: Civil War Sites in Virginia: A Tour Guide (Paperback)
I am applying the review to the other books I purchased as the comments are meant for all of them:
I purchased a number of books on touring Civil War sites as we are planning trips to do so this year and next, during the final sesquicentennial dates. It's difficult to know which will be the "best" resources and I suspect that many if not all will compliment the others. The sites books have information concisely packaged. The Road Trip Books bring an orientation to the scenes as they exist today (as well as historical perspective) and the Day-By Day books allow another method of quick reference.
I needed the maps as well to remain oriented. With all of them, I can find not only the immediate point of interest, but also the context into which the events will fit. If I had to select just one or two to concentrate upon, I would be hard pressed to decide. I am in the process of learning as much of the information as will stick. It may seem like a lot of duplicative effort, but repetition and evolving context are what helps me learn and I want to learn, to appreciate what I will be viewing.
I also have purchased Shelby Foote's anthology to re-read as I had misplaced those volumes purchased when I was a kid. After seeing him in Ken Burn's The Civil War, I remembered how witty and enjoyable he is. All of this is available on Amazon
