This guide provides an opportunity to study the vast collection of US Government documents in the National Archives that relate to the Civil War. In addition to the records of the conduct of the war, the book describes records relating to the war that were created after Lee's surrender. Substantive administrative histories of the agencies of the Federal Government add to the usefulness of the volume.
