The Civil War in the Western Theater, 1862Book - 2014
This Civil War resource provides maps of the territories involved in the Western Hemisphere, plus it showcases several military leaders' strategic plans to advance their armies to capture the land for Union control while detailing some of the battlefields and bloodshed. The struggle was long and costly and only culminated with the conquest of the rebellious Confederacy, the preservation of the Union, and the end of slavery. These campaign pamphlets on the American Civil War, prepared in commemoration of our national sacrifices, seek to remember that war and honor those in the United States Army who died to preserve the Union and free the slaves as well as to tell the story of those American soldiers who fought for the Confederacy.
