Historical Dictionary of the Civil War: A-L
Scarecrow Press, 2002年1月1日 - 1701页
It has been said that if the United States were an individual, the Civil War was the great traumatic event of its adolescence that has haunted its adulthood. The Civil War arguably was the greatest single event in American history. Since the country's founding, the nation's southern and northern sections developed differently, thus creating separate economies, labour systems and political philosophies, making conflict likely. This two-volume set discusses the military aspects of the Civil War, covering the issues that started the war; the military personnel who strategized, commanded, and fought the war; and the many battles, engagements, and skirmishes that comprised the war.
