Captains of the Civil War: A Chronicle of the Blue and the Gray
by William Wood
In 1921, William Wood released Captains of the Civil War: A Chronicle of the Blue and the Gray as part of the Chronicle of America series. As Wood notes, his book corresponded with the 60th anniversary of the war, and though the Civil War involved politics, Wood only wanted to cover the military aspect of the war. Separating the military aspects of the war from the civilian and political causes was a common practice among historians in the early 20th century, as the country underwent sectional reconciliation between North and South by glossing over divisive issues like slavery. This chronicle of the Civil War includes pictures of the famous commanders, including Grant, Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Sherman, as well as battle maps and more. It it specially formatted with a Table of Contents for easier navigation as well.
