Civil War

Our expansive coverage of the American Civil War takes you from the Battle of first Manassas, where Stonewall Jackson won the day – and a new nickname – in the war’s first major battle, to the battle of Chancellorsville, where the 37th New York Volunteers, the “Irish Rifles,” tried unsuccessfully to stem an all-enveloping Union Rout. WHN has hundreds of articles that examine the Civil War from every angle, all searchable in WHN’s database by name, date, battle or almost anything else you can think to search for.
