The American Civil War helped define the United States as a country, and was in many ways the first industrial war. The Timeline of the American Civil War chronicles the war as it happened, detailing the key battles and events that act as signposts in the slow change of fortunes of either side. The book covers the war chronologically, divided into chapters covering each year of the war, with box features and full-colour artworks and archive photographs. At the foot of each text page is a timeline linking events happening elsewhere at the time, which ties in with the main gatefold at the back. At the back of The Timeline of the American Civil War is an eight-page fold-out double-sided gatefold timeline, profiling key events through the war in a unique graphical representation, with cut-out images and colour keys under various themes and headings. The gatefold timeline forms an attractive poster, which readers will want to cut out and keep on their wall for easy reference.
