Product Details
By: Brett Barker

This lively, illustrated guide focuses on Wisconsin in the Civil War, but is broadly applicable to Civil War research anywhere. Images of original documents and historic photographs illustrate every chapter, acquainting readers with both the Civil War and its sources. The easy-to-use and informative text is unlike anything else currently on the market.

Excerpt from Alan T. Nolan's foreword to Exploring Civil War Wisconsin: "A treasure trove of primary sources awaits you, and these resources can offer you insight into the Civil War era that can be revealed in no other way. Exploring Civil War Wisconsin can help you become a better researcher and historian, and it can help you unlock this fascinating part of our shared past."

Throughout the book, boxed features and sidebars provide background information and tips on how to do research. Author Brett Barker explains how to uncover the history of an individual soldier, his regiment, and his role in the Union Army using rosters, military records, pension files, and memoirs. And, he shows how to explore the home front during the war using the census, newspapers, city directories, and government records.
