281 pp, large 8vo (9 3/16" H). B&w illustrations. "(Gives) you the unusual persons, attitudes and events you simply won't find in any standard Civil War encyclopedia or dictionary. Where else can you find the fascianting anecdotes, colorful stories and vivid details of battle told by men on the front lines? And see firsthand, the press's outrageous inaccuracy in covering the conflict? Or feel the frustration of Union soldiers who, equipped with smoothbores, marched into battle knowing that rifle-armed Rebs would pick them off like sitting ducks? It's all here, in this unique and invaluable collection of little-known, yet undeniably compelling aspects of America's bloodiest engagement." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, tiny tear with crease at bottom edge of front panel.
