Book Description Stackpole Books, U.S.A., 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Written in 1865 by a prominent encyclopedist and offered to the public in early 1866, William Tenney's MILITARY AND NAVAL HISTORY OF THE REBELLION IN THE UNITED STATES was the first truly complete, comprehensive history of the American Civil War. It was used for decades afterward as the semi-official record of the military and naval events that took place during the conflict. With the encyclopedist's devotion to accuracy, detail, and conciseness, Tenney captures in this single volume all the principal battles and important skirmishes on land and sea. The plans and objectives of each campaign are clearly stated, and the progress of the armies in their execution is described and illustrated by the generous use of maps and drawings. The manner of raising, organizing, equipping, and commanding large armies and the navies of the Federal and Confederate governments is described in detail. So are the administrative, medical, and engineering developments, including the evolution of new weaponry, methods of fortifications, naval artillery, and the great revolution in tactics that took place during the conflict. Likewise, the issue of prisoners-of-war and martial law in occupied territories is presented with clarity and effect. Political acts, diplomatic initiatives, and war policies adopted by the combatants, such as the secession of the Southern States and the organizaion of the Confederacy prior to the war; the political negotiations during the war; the triumph of Emancipation, with the treatment of blacks, whether as soldiers or freedmen; and all other events directly related to the history of the Civil War are nicely integrated into the overall story. A bonus in this book is the last section containing 88 pages of biographical sketches of officers killed in action. The list of fallen officers more or less represents the elite families in mid-19th century America. Throughout the work, Tenney includes verbatim a large number of original documents, such as correspondence, reports, orders, and communications between commanders and between them and their political leaders. The book is thus a remarkable original source for materials related to the war. As for verification of facts, Tenney submitted portions of the work for inspection by senior officers on both sides -- all of whom were alive in 1865 -- and he received their approval for its completeness and accuracy.
