Maps make me happy!!! :)
Very militarily-oriented and even for the military enthusiasts I'm guessing this one isn't a huge hit (too basic for the enthusiasts and too detailed for the layman). Some good information and the maps are certainly reproducable for the classroom (although I'm not sure if the author allows teachers to do this?), but in general this wouldn't be a must-read I'd suggest for those hoping to learn more about the Civil War.
A pretty good overview of the military battles and campaigns of the civil war. The 150th anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg was just a few weeks ago. I finally have an understanding of why the battle was so important. I recommend this for anyone interested in Civil War or military history.

Great atlas of the major Civil War campaigns and battles. Two major complaints, though. 1) Each battle summary is only one page long and is, therefore, kind of superficial. 2) The maps show general positions of armies (in a kind of "zoomed out" way).
One of the must reads of the US Civil War. All major battles covered with an overview of each battle and very clear maps regarding the battle. Very well done.
A great reference, easy to use. Provides "thumbnail" summaries of the conflicts to go with each map. Used in class, and have no regrets.
A great companion to read alongside a more detailed account of the war. Definitely recommended.
