  • Tragic Glory: A Concise, Illustrated History of the Civil War

Tragic Glory is a convenient handbook history of America's Civil War. The lively, well-written text is accompanied by rare photographs and letters from the era, some of which are published here for the first time. The volume also includes fascinating human interest stories as well as profiles of many of the conflict's colorful personalities such as George A. Custer, John S. Mosby, and Daniel E. Sickles. There’s even a chapter on how to research your Civil War ancestors.

“Gibboney’s Tragic Glory is a great place to start your study of the Civil War. Detailed, dramatic, and compact.”

Michael Barton, Author of Goodmen: The Character of the Civil War Soldiers & Associate Professor of Social Science and American Studies, Pennsylvania State University at Harrisburg
