Civil War History is in its sixth decade as the
leading scholarly journal of “the middle period”—covering
not only the War Between the States but the events leading up to it and the
results flowing from it. Its topics include slavery and abolition, antebellum
and Reconstruction politics, diplomacy, social and cultural developments
in mid–nineteenth century America, and military history.
In addition to the major articles in each issue, comprehensive
book reviews assist the scholar in keeping abreast of current literature
in the field.
As the outstanding forum for studies in this pivotal
period in American history, Civil War History belongs in every major
library collection, including those for students, historians, buffs, and
the interested general reader.
