Synopsis: This new edition of the definitive guide to Civil War battlefields is really a completely new book. While the first edition covered 60 major battlefields, from Fort Sumter to Appomattox, the second covers all of the 384 designated as the "principal battlefields" in the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission Report. As in the first edition, the essays are authoritative and concise, written by such leading historians as James M. McPherson, Stephen W. Sears, Edwin C. Bearss, James I. Robinson, Jr., and Gary W. Gallager. The second edition also features 83 new four-color maps covering the most important battles. The Civil War Battlefield Guide is an essential reference for anyone interested in the Civil War.

From the Back Cover: Praise for THE CIVIL WAR BATTLEFIELD GUIDE
"The Civil War Battlefield Guide remains the best single source of information on the 384 principal battles of the Civil War. The authors who contributed constitute a veritable who’s who of Civil War scholars. The battle maps offer stunning visuals for appreciating the battles in relation to contemporary roads and highways. If there is one published authority for understanding this country’s Civil War battlefields (and there is), this is it."
—Dwight T. Pitcaithley, National Park Service, Chief Historian (retired)
"Landscapes speak to us, but only when we are informed.  This is no ordinary reprinting of a Civil War battlefield guide; it marks the sesquicentennial by allowing informed tourists, as readers first, to be ushered through these sacred sites by some of our most important historians.  Their voices and their insights, not to mention their narrative skill, remind us of why these landscapes forever move us as they educate us about our most desperate and transformative national experience."
––David W. Blight, Yale University, and author of A Slave No More and Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory
"Everyone interested in the Civil War—and especially those committed to preserving its battlefields—will relish the insightful commentary and crisp prose in this useful guide. Read it, and then keep it in the car for handy reference!"
—Carol Reardon, George Winfree Professor of American History, Penn State University
An essential reference for anyone interested in the Civil War, The Civil War Battlefield Guide covers all of the 384 principal battles designated in the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission Report. Leading historians, including James M. McPherson, Stephen W. Sears, Edwin C. Bearss, and Gary W. Gallagher, contributed essays. Frances H. Kennedy wrote summaries of more than three hundred battles. The Conservation Fund dedicates the proceeds of the book to battlefield preservation. 

The Conservation Fund combines a passion for conservation with an entrepreneurial spirit to protect America’s favorite places outdoors. Since 1985, the Fund has worked with local leaders to  conserve nearly 7 million acres, from historic treasures to city parks to wilderness. www.conservationfund.org
Frances H. Kennedy is the director of the Fund’s Historic Lands Program.
