I believe we have the 1968 edition of this. I can't remember how many times this thing came in handy for history papers.

Ok, so I actually read Volume 7 which covers 1861 to 1865 and exclusively discusses the civil war. This is mostly just your classic history text book, but with some great illustrations and diagrams. In short its alot of fun for the art work. But its also got some solid info in there.
