Brother versus Brother... A War of Honor and Hearbreak

Dear Fellow History Buff,


By the mid-19th century, the United States was still a young country, but it had come a long way. However, it soon became a country divided, with two distinct ideologies.

Introducing Civil War Quarterly

Finally, a Civil War magazine designed to be passed from generation to generation. Civil War Quarterly is a beautiful, hardbound journal of America’s War Between the States. Each hard-bound issue is full of beautiful maps and illustrations, rare photographs, and the best research, writing and editing available on the market today.

Civil War Quarterly is filled with gripping photos and stories that put you in the center of the action! What’s in a typical issue? In “Will You Give Us Our Whiskey,” the 51 st Pennsylvania led a desperate Union charge across Burnside’s bridge at Antietam. “War Cloud Lowering” takes you to the Battle of first Manassas, where Stonewall Jackson won the day—and a new nickname—in the war’s first major battle. “The Treetops Were Alive with Sharpshooters” details the Battle of Chancellorsville, when the 37th New York Volunteers, the “Irish Rifles” tried unsuccessfully to stem an all enveloping Union rout.

Chronicled like Never Before in Exquisite Hardbound Volumes - As a young country, the United States had come so far so fast. But this young country was a country divided, a country with two distinct ideologies.


Rare Photos and Historic Paintings

The features are only the beginning: each issue of Civil War Quarterly also includes regular departments, like the one on Matthew Brady at Gettysburg, chronicling Brady and his talented crew of photographers who rushed into battle to record the war. Allan Pinkerton—the Scottish born detective who arrived on the scene with a crucial task: protect Abraham Lincoln. Or the fascinating profile of John Pelham, who became a legend at the age of 23 before he died fighting for the South. The Weaponry department features weapons of the day, such as Civil War swords, a hot item for modern collectors. And don’t miss our modern day profile of artists painting Civil War battle scenes.

Detailed Maps … In a Hard-Bound Volume To Grace Your Home Library …

It’s really impossible to tell you everything that’s in an issue of Civil War Quarterly—the hours and hours of fascinating articles, the rare photos, the detailed battle maps. But it’s all in an exquisite hard-bound volume to be passed from generation to generation, and mark a proud place in your personal library. You’re just going to have to see for yourself!

        Well, here it is a year later and your greedy publications are still only available to those who can afford it. As a disabled Korean Vet, I can’t. and Barnes and Nobel is miles away. So I’m robbed of the information you offer. I don’t suppose you sell back issues of the paper issues. I don’t expect anything as your arrogance is so great you don’t give a d***n about us. I laid in the snow at 30 plus below and fought for this country and am paying the price in physical and mental pain. BUT what should you care. You’re so self important there is no place for us on your subscription list. May God forgive you, we won’t.

    I have a paper back edition of early fall 2014 of “Civil War Quarterly” obtained at a newsstand and am considering a subscription. However, looking at your website, I see only a hardcover edition available for subscription. Is the less expensive newsstand version available for subscription?

    • Posted December 18, 2014 at 11:00 am | Permalink

      We only offer hardcover versions for the subscriptions.

        Wish you had a softcover subscription as well. Hardbound is a bit steep. I’d definitely subscribe to a softcover though. Till then, I’ll just continue to get them at the news stand. Unfortunately I miss some issues that way though when they are sold out….

    I’m here again. I left a message on your WWII Quarterly and expect it is the same for this one. As a Korean Vet with multiple problems and medical treatments I find it hard to track down the paper copy. Hope your satisfied with the rotten treatment you deal out to us. It seems I can’t even get back issues.
    God you are an arrogant bunch. Is this what I lay in the snow in Korea at -20 for, so you could make my life even more miserable? Enjoy my pain, I don’t think you deserve it,. but can’t do anything about it.

    Hey, I love the magazine and await each quarterly issue with great anticipation. I did; however notice a small mistake in the Early Spring issue. You ran the same cover photo credit of Ulysses Grant on pg. 4 as the last quarter issue of 2014., which was the correct one. This month should tell us the painter of the raid on Selma. Just thought I would let you know. Keep up the excellent work.

    When is it time for me to renew my subscription to the Civil War Quarterly Hardback

  18. Posted March 29, 2016 at 10:44 am | Permalink

    Your article in this month’s issue entitled “Slaughter at Fort Pillow” has a major error. The article includes a photo of a steamboat under construction and it is identified as the tinclad gunboat “New Era” that helped defend at the Battle of Fort Pillow in 1864. That is not the tinclad. Instead that is the single chimney “New Era” as it was going through conversion to the “USS Essex”. The Essex became a 2-chimney timberclad and later went through a major upgrade to a 1000-lb ironclad gunboat.
    Wikipedia article on the USS Essex includes this same photo as in the article and the caption is correct. There are other websites that incorrectly identify this photo as the tinclad that was at the Battle of Fort Pillow. This photo is not related to the Battle at all.

    McFarland & Company, Publishers, released my book _Confederate Cabinet Departments and Secretaries_ in May 2016. Thousands of books have been written covering every aspect of the Civil War, yet scant attention has been given to the civilian government of the Confederacy. The most recent book on the subject was published more than 70 years ago and what little has been written since is scattered among various journals and magazines. Drawing on scholarship old and new, my book provides a detailed overview of each of the Confederacy’s six executive departments, along with biographical sketches of each man who held a position in Jefferson Davis’s cabinet.

    I’d like to get it reviewed in a reputable Civil War publication, but I can’t locate the contact information for your book review editor on your web site.

    Copies of the book, which is available either in soft cover or as an e-book, may be purchased or review copies may be obtained by contacting the publisher at or by calling 800-253-2187. ISBN 978-1-4766-6521-4 (paper); ISBN 978-1-4766-2514-0 (e-book)

    I agree with a couple of other people that express disappointment that you don’t offer a paperback subscription. I have 4 subscriptions to other Civil War magazines. If you offered a paperback, I’d order it too. Hardbound is too dear and in my humble opinion makes no sense. Love your paperback,but my local outlet no longer carries it, So we both loose.

    I ordered this for my son-in-law and he has only got 2 issues when he was suppose to get 4 can someone tell me what is going on he should have had the fall issue by now
