Description

Every year more than 5 million people visit America's battlefields. Here in maps, text, and illustrations is all of the history, lore, heroism, and tragedy of those sites. Organized chronologically by conflict and the battles within each, American Battlefields is illustrated with two-color maps re-created from actual battle plans and archives as well as many photographs and period drawings. Each entry includes descriptions of the battle's underlying causes and strategic objectives, its notable commanders and pivotal turning points, and its historical importance. Full coverage of every battle in each region of the country, appendices that include a state-by-state guide to the battlefields, and lists of commanders and troop strengths make American Battlefields both a reference standard and a perfect travel book.
