"It should . . . be kept in the glove compartment of every tourist with an interest in American history." ―The Chicago "Sun Times"

Reviews - What do customers think about A Tour Guide to the Civil War, Fourth Edition: The Complete State-by-State Guide to Battlegrounds, Landmarks, Museums, Relics, and Sites?

A Good Guide to Civil War Sites  Feb 13, 2007
This is a good book to find Civil War sites through the US. Alice Cromie shows us where to find major sites as well as some of the little known sites. We not only read of the war itself, but the location of events leading up to the war, and locations of museums dedicated to the Civil War. If you use this book
as a tour guide, be sure to call places ahead of time, as some of these no longer exist. Over all it is a good book to have.
 
Excellent Companion for Touring Civil War Sites  Dec 4, 2004
Cromie has written an excellent guide for locating Civil War-related sites in the United States.

The book is organized by state and usually contains the following information:

1. City/town of the event or relation to the Civil War.
2. Location and address of the site.
3. Significance of the site or event.
4. Date of the event.

This book is a gem because it mentions several locations that may not be known to both the Civil War novice and long-time student.

Highly recommended as an invaluable guide for your next Civil War trip, particularly to those less well-known places!

Read and enjoy!
 
Excellent guide for all civil war enthusiasts.  May 27, 1999
This book is an easy to follow guide to many civil war sites. Some of the places are the well known sites and some are not so well known. But, you will enjoy tracking these sites state by state. I've used the book sysytematically and when I've visited a site, I highlight in the book the place I've been on the state maps provided. Buy it! Try it! Take lots of pictures, too! Start a scrapbook of civil war sites you've visited. It makes for a great conversation piece.
