A Civil War Treasury does not pretend to be a sweeping historical account of the conflict. Instead, it presents anecdotes of army life and encampments, explanations of logistics and tactics, descriptions of soldiers and citizens, and deeds of honor and infamy. There are profiles of people, regiments, and ships songs and poems and serious treatments of particular aspects of the war such as musketry and infantry. Camp recipes are discussed, women soldiers are profiled, military medicine is assessed, and an invaluable bibliography and resource guide is appended. The object of A Civil War Treasury is to provide a deeper understanding of the human side of the war as well as its more technical aspects,topics which are frequently neglected in more traditional treatments. Few other books give more fascinating insight into the many facets of the Republic's greatest crisis.The following subject headings are purposefully explored in each chapter: Incidents of War, the Men, the Women, Lincoln, the Units, War and Society, Army Life, War and the Muses.
