KIRKUS REVIEW

ewed as a ""tour guide,"" one finds it hard to believe that people really are so obsessed by the Civil War that they might need this kind of Blue Book to the sites not only of engagements, but of installations, monuments, museums, homes of famous and not so famous people associated with the Civil War, even markers recording incidents. Any yet such is the case, and the demand apparently exists in the remotest parts of the country, with minimal association (such as Oregon, the Dakotas, etc.). All the then existing states and territories, alphabetically listed, and within their boundaries, the towns and cities, the sites and memorials, are included. It is compact information and for library reference, one can see it as an important tool for researchers. Illustrations and maps add to the practical ""tour"" value. Specifically for buffs.
