The Civil War Day By Day is divided into months, each month preceded by a summary which helps to set the military and political facts in context of the time and reveals the attitudes of the people, North and South, toward the war at that point. This unique volume’s features include special studies, covering the facts and figures of population, casualties, and the economics of the war; an Index by Dates; and the complete bibliography of Bruce Catton’s The Centennial History of the Civil War for which project E. B. Long served as director of research.
