Book Description

During the years 1861 to 1865 America was engaged in a great civil war. Union and Confederate armies were locked in a desperate struggle that raged across nine states from Gettysburg in the north to Savannah in the south. The heart of the South, from Arkansas to the coast of Georgia was laid bare.

More than 600,000 Americans gave their lives for one cause or the other; more Americans died during the American Civil War than in all wars thereafter combined, up to and including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Today, little remains to remind us of those terrible times, just a few National Military Parks whose quiet beauty belies the horrors that once took place upon them. Most of the folks who live in the Southern United States take these beautiful parks for granted; most of them have never visited even one. This booklet is a guide to the Civil War Battlefields of the South and it comes complete with photographs.

Visitors to the South will find that there’s at least one of these great parks in just about every state, and they should not overlook these important historical sites for, in addition to their appeal as well maintained public parks, they also serve to remind us of the hardships our young nation endured in asserting the democratic principles of government that we so cherish today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for your next road trip! February 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Each Civil War site covered is given a fair, dispassionate description of how and why that site made the list, what happened there, and what you should make it a point to see if and when you visit. Location, address, and when possible, phone numbers are provided, along with dates and times of operation for each site.
I highly recommend this guide as light and easy reading good for both the novice and expert.

This is a very interesting read. The writer uses a style that brings the subject to life and really makes you want to visit these places. It's a great subject for a book and very well written. Enjoyable and informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling and informative March 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're looking for a comprehensive guide to the American Civil War battlefields, then look no further than this book. Not only are you given a tour of each battlefield and where to find them, but the author has written each story of the battle not just from a military, but human perspective too. Today the battlefields are peaceful national parks, but with this book you can plan your trip making sure you don't miss out on any of the important sights and from the added battle info use your imagination to realize what it must have been like when the guns were blazing back then.
