Full Description

From studies of Antietam Battlefield, site of the bloodiest day in American military history, to Andersonville, the infamous Confederate prison, these graphically illustrated essays broaden our understanding of the American Civil War. They demonstrate how historical archaeology, combined with the traditional techniques of history, generates new insights into battlefield tactics, social and military history, and the effects of the war on civilians and communities.
