This book and DVD-ROM have 104,960 reproductions of New York Times articles and eyewitness accounts that chronicle every campaign and battle of the American Civil War. Written by correspondents on the front lines of the war, each article was published between 1861 and 1865 and provides a first-hand account of seminal events from the first shot fired at Fort Sumter to the Confederate army's surrender at Appomattox. Two-hundred photographs, line-drawings, and maps procured from the archives of the Library of Congress and the New York Times show the human cost and heroism of the Civil War and chronicle the strategies employed by the Confederate and Union armies. Edited by historians Craig Symonds and Harold Holzer and with a foreword by President Bill Clinton, the book captures the New York Times' unabashed support of President Lincoln and the Union with editorials on slavery, states' rights, Ulysses S. Grant, and Robert E. Lee. Hardcover. 480 pages.
