A Buff Looks at the American Civil War: A Look at the United States’ Greatest Conflict from the Point of View of a Civil War Buff

580 pages8 hours


There have been thousands of books put out about the Civil War, but none by a Civil War Buff, so I wrote one. This book was a produce of five years' work and puts the war in a way that casual fans of the war will be surprised at what took place.

This book is in three parts:

Civil War Timeline: the events, battles, politics, and personal observations of those who were a part of the war.

Things that any good soldier of the Civil War should know: the weapons, uniforms, food, duties, marching, fighting, medical advice, and slang (with a little tribute to the Navy and Marines).

Amazing Facts: starting with the issues, this part displays many facts that usually do not make it into the history books.
