CD: Pictorial Field Book of the Civil War: Journeys Through The Battlefields In The Wake Of Conflict, Volumes I-III - Benson J. Lossing. Benson J. Lossing "was one of the most popular historians of his day…thousands of Americans regarded Ben Lossing not only as one of the most important historians but also as one who, with his combination of prose, pictures, and research, made the past live in ways few others could…Throughout his career, Lossing strove to link history to place in such a way that Americans would know they had a past and would therefore honor it." In Volume One Lossing covers the origins of Rebellion and ends with the first Battle of Bull Run. "The second volume gets as far as the surrender of Vicksburg in the west, but only takes the Eastern Theater as far as Burnside's resignation. The last volume has to stretch from the campaigns of 1863, excluding Vicksburg, to the end of the war." For Lossing, "the war was primarily political, not military, in nature. It was a rebellion led by a small group of conspirators. How these conspirators led the South into secession was as crucial to his story as the events at Gettysburg, Vicksburg, or even Appomattox." While not presenting a balanced interpretation of the war, Lossing guides the reader through a Northerner's viewpoint and feelings about the Civil War immediately after Appomattox. For each volume, a detailed table of contents, a list of illustrations and an index, which covers all three volumes, provide easy access to information.
