Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0452279771, Mass Market Paperback)

Fierce combat to daring raids, hideous prisons to broken families, the Civil War is captured in one dramatic day by a gifted storyteller

The Civil War spanned 1,549 days during which families, neighbors, and friends went to battle against one another. The day of April 10, 1863 was the midpoint of this national war. This dramatic portrait explores that day with a depth and profundity rarely brought to Civil War histories. This three-dimensional snapshot reveals everything from the minutiae of day-to-day life to the major events which shaped the nation.

Quoting extensively from personal journals and letters, One Day in the Civil War paints a breathtaking picture of heroes the history books never knew. Surprise train raids, lightning-fast calvary skirmishes, cold-hearted executions, fatal mishaps, deadly illnesses and daring rescues shed new light on one of this nation's most tragic periods. Revealing the real war, not just the battles, One Day of the Civil War ricochets April 10, 1863 back to the present day.
-- Compare "One Day of the Civil War" to two recent Plume rifles, Rebel Private and Voices of the Civil War.
-- Maps, photos, and a one-of-a-kind appendix listing every casualty from April 10, 1863 is included.
