Civil War Travel Guide
Thirty-seven newly commissioned, easy-to-read maps lead readers to each Civil War battle site and are accompanied by discussions of what occurred during each confrontation.
The best travel guide to Civil War sites, this full-color book provides helpful overviews of what happened at key battlefields. It is not comprehensive, but roughly two dozen major spots have full descriptions. Most useful is the practical information for people planning trips: directions to each battlefield, park hours, entrance fees, phone numbers, brief notes on what to expect, and lists of nearby historic inns. This book's compact size makes it an ideal traveling companion. The photos are typically beautiful--exactly what you would expect from National Geographic.
