Determined to preserve a way of life rooted in slavery, 11 southern states declared themselves the independent Confederate States of America early in 1861. President Lincoln asked for 75,000 militiamen to put down this insurrection. The next four years would see three million Americans take up arms against each other leading to the deaths of at least 620,000 soldiers. This remarkably detailed map of Civil War battles reveals the dates, number of casualties, troop movements, and more to gain a better understanding of how this war was fought. Published in April 2005, this map represents half of a two-piece set with "A Nation Transformed by Civil War." Together, they make a wonderful gift for anyone interested in the War Between the States.
