Publisher's summary

The Civil War: 1860 - 1865 examines the people and events involved in the bloody war that pitted the Northern states against those that seceded to form the Confederacy.

History is dramatic - and the renowned, award-winning authors Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier demonstrate this in a compelling series aimed at young listeners. Covering American history from the founding of Jamestown through present day, these volumes explore far beyond the dates and events of a historical chronicle to present a moving illumination of the ideas, opinions, attitudes and tribulations that led to the birth of this great nation.

OK short history of the Civil War

Nice and succinct. It touches on the major players, battles and points. It's the length of a podcast.

The Civil war

Very informative I would recommend it added to your library if you’re an avid reader of the subject. Mr Manchester is a very slow and bland narrator, he will put you to sleep.
