    Very interesting work The premise of this volume is simple Publish newspaper articles from The New York Times depicting the progress of the Civil War from 1861 1865 The book contains about 600 newspaper articles there is also a CD that has many thousands of additional articles The volume also includes items from the 1850s that set the context for the Civil War such as stories about slavery as well as the years after the Civil War covering Reconstruction For those interested in primar Very interesting work The premise of this volume is simple Publish newspaper articles from The New York Times depicting the progress of the Civil War from 1861 1865 The book contains about 600 newspaper articles there is also a CD that has many thousands of additional articles The volume also includes items from the 1850s that set the context for the Civil War such as stories about slavery as well as the years after the Civil War covering Reconstruction For those interested in primary sources, this will be fascinating reading.On the other hand, if you want to know details of battles and campaigns, one will not be so satisfied but that is not what this book is about The coverage of the fighting at Forts Henry and Donelson, for instance, is rather brief and sketchy On the other hand, the reader gets a sense of the sometimes confusing and contradictory stories from the front that Americans were reading in this newspaper.The CD helps supplement the book At one point, a Times story refers to the Union victory at Pea Ridge There is no reference in the book to that strange battle, but there are a series of newspaper articles from March 12 March 23, 1862 that provide many details of the engagement.It is interesting to get the Times take on the status and conduct of the war, its judgment of generals, politicians, and the issues of the day The reader develops a greater sensitivity to the context in which the war took place It is also interesting to observe that reporters did not write stories objectively, but would often express their own views on matters.All in all, a valuable historical resource

  2. Matthew Matthew says:

    This was not what I expected Clearly to expect a true full recounting of 5 years of war in a single volume is too much, but this selection of articles, op eds, and letters feels like a lot is missing This could be a good tool for someone to get a decent historical overview of the war I will say that the attempt to provide documentation on most every general from both sides was impressive.

    Just received this book and it s exactly what I was hoping it would be There s an extensive compilation of articles chronicling events as they were witnessed by reporters on or near the front lines The reports from First Bull Run Manassas are a nice sampler, with some of the early dispatches trumpeting a great Union victory but then later reports documenting stories told by soldiers stragging into Washington that it had been a disaster Then comes the inevitable analysis and spin doctoring, wi Just received this book and it s exactly what I was hoping it would be There s an extensive compilation of articles chronicling events as they were witnessed by reporters on or near the front lines The reports from First Bull Run Manassas are a nice sampler, with some of the early dispatches trumpeting a great Union victory but then later reports documenting stories told by soldiers stragging into Washington that it had been a disaster Then comes the inevitable analysis and spin doctoring, with some saying it was a fluke and others that the South had shot its wad on this one victory and could never muster the force for another such fight again Beyond reports of battles, there are lots of editorials and letters to the editor discussing the larger issues of politics and slavery, as well as nice little snippets like a letter from a physician saying why it would be better to issue mittens to soldiers than gloves This looks like a great resource for primary source study Four stars

  4. Alan Dahl Alan Dahl says:

    Amazing look at the Civil War as it unfolded It is incredibly interesting watching the NY Times spin the war, even portions that we today recognize as tragedies and draws if not defeats At times the stories proved eerily prophetic especially on the matter of Reconstruction Above all else, this book is tragic you watch as victory is tainted first by Lincoln s assassination, and then the realization that slavery has been replaced by crippling poverty, and racial violence in the South At i Amazing look at the Civil War as it unfolded It is incredibly interesting watching the NY Times spin the war, even portions that we today recognize as tragedies and draws if not defeats At times the stories proved eerily prophetic especially on the matter of Reconstruction Above all else, this book is tragic you watch as victory is tainted first by Lincoln s assassination, and then the realization that slavery has been replaced by crippling poverty, and racial violence in the South At it s close the reader is left with the sobering knowledge that the effects of slavery will persist even to today Great read for any Civil War enthusiast

    I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get a kind of back door take on the Civil War It has most of the articles about the war, as it happened, from the New York Times I found particularly interesting the descriptions by embedded reporters There was definitely a lack of impartiality, but I found some of the qualities such as sarcasm entertaining It is a very large book, with very tiny print, so it takes a while to read, but it s worth it As a bonus, there is a CD included which I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get a kind of back door take on the Civil War It has most of the articles about the war, as it happened, from the New York Times I found particularly interesting the descriptions by embedded reporters There was definitely a lack of impartiality, but I found some of the qualities such as sarcasm entertaining It is a very large book, with very tiny print, so it takes a while to read, but it s worth it As a bonus, there is a CD included which has all of the articles from the Times in their entirety
