History of the Civil War, 1861-1865 : annottated by James Ford Rhodes. Includes Maps. James Ford Rhodes (1848 -1927), was an American industrialist and historian born in Cleveland, Ohio. After earning a fortune in the iron, coal, and steel industries by 1885, he retired from business.

Awarded the Pulitzer Prize in History in 1918, Rhodes's chronicle of the War Between the States both provides the general reader with a clearly written description of the events of four bloody years as well as reveals the self-educated author's belief in the war's cause as the evil of slavery.

Since writing the three volumes, published respectively in 1895, 1899 and 1904, much new original material has come to light.

Official Records of the Union and Confederate Navies; Diary of Gideon Welles; Life of Rawlins, which J. H. Wilson kindly permitted me to read in manuscript before publication; the Letters and Diaries of John Hay; Miss Nicolay's Personal Traits of Lincoln; Life and Letters of General Meade; W. R. Livermore, Story of the Civil War; J. Bigelow, Jr., The Campaign of Chancellorsville; W. R. Thayer, Life of John Hay; The Reminiscences of Carl Schurz.
