9780820337302: Crossroads of Conflict: A Guide to Civil War Sites in Georgia

The impact of the Civil War on Georgia was greater than any other event in the state’s history. Approximately eleven thousand Georgians were killed and the state suffered more than one hundred thousand in total casualties. Georgia was extremely influential in this nation’s most tragic conflict, and the war touched every corner of the state.   Based on a comprehensive survey of sites identified by the Georgia Civil War Commission in 2000, Crossroads of Conflict covers 350 historic sites in detail, bringing the experience of the war to life. Written by Georgia Civil War Commission staff members Barry L. Brown and Gordon R. Elwell, this full-color edition of Crossroads of Conflict is an updated and significantly expanded version of the guide released by the state of Georgia in 1994.   Crossroads of Conflict is arranged geographically, separating the state into nine distinct regions. Beginning in northeast Georgia, sites are followed west to east, north to south. Detailed maps of each region are supplemented by inset maps of urban areas. For each site, the guide provides a detailed history, driving directions, online resources, and GPS coordinates.   Color photographs and period images document the locations, which include battlefields (major and minor), POW camps, hospitals, houses, buildings, bridges, cemeteries, and monuments. The war experiences of all Georgians, not just soldiers, are addressed within the guide’s informative text, and a detailed chronology is included.

Review:

Superb . . . The commentary is concise and written with feeling. The book is an indispensable traveler’s companion.

(Brandon H. Beck Director, McCormick Civil War Institute, Shenandoah University)

Crossroads of Conflict will no doubt be a treasured possession for those who like to visit historic sites and potentially a boon to Georgia tourism.

( Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

There is nothing quite like the experience of standing on the ground where armies marched and battles were fought to connect us to the past in a unique and powerful way.

(W. Todd Groce President and CEO, Georgia Historical Society)

In the hot summer of 1864, the outcome of the Civil War was decided right here in Georgia. Crossroads of Conflict shows you where to find the war today, whether battlefields, historic sites, or museums. It’s the indispensable guide for the 150th anniversary of the war in Georgia.

(Gordon L. Jones Senior Military Historian, Atlanta History Center)

Brown and Elwell have created a wonderful work by organizing an unwieldy topic into a very pleasant book.

( Northeast Georgia Living)

Crossroads is an important catalog of a pivotal time in Georgia and our nation's history. Hats off to all those who played a part in creating this impressive work that combines scholarship, tourism, and some old-fashioned storytelling.
