This two-volume collection of newspapers is one of the most important Civil War publications ever produced, and it brings the events of the war vividly in focus. A unique, of-the-moment perspective, it begins with the Nat Turner slave insurrection and covers every battle — many by the local papers for a truly firsthand, up-close view. Lincoln's election, inauguration, and assassination are given full coverage. Caren's extensive collection includes many extremely rare Southern editions which would never be seen except in this remarkable publication. Loaded with engravings depicting battles, military leaders, and maps, this is an absolutely essential addition to any enthusiast's collection.
