Volumes 1-4 mostly contained contributions by Union and Confederate officers. Volume 5, contains articles that appeared in the decades following the war, some in such well-known magazines as Century, Harper's, Hearst's, and McClure's, others in Ohio Soldier, the Magazine of American History, and similar publications largely unknown to modern readers. Volume 6 pays greater attention to soldier's views of the war and pursues the "war's undying controversies.""

Battles and Leaders of the Civil War is recognized as the outstanding history of the War Between the States to come out of the 19th century. This series was originally conceived in 1883 by the editors of the Century Company, who set out to provide an accurate, unbiased account of the war. Battles and Leaders of the Civil War was authored by the commanders and their subordinates from both the Confederate and Union forces who actually fought, planned, or were eyewitnesses to the events they describe herein. Here you can read about the events of the war written by such prominent generals as Beauregard, Grant, Longstreet, Sherman, McClellan, Butler, and many others. These books are profusely illustrated with maps, charts and engravings by the most prominent artists of the era. - Jacket flap."@en
