The Complete Civil War on DVD-ROM

This is the most comprehensive single reference source for Civil War research, comprised of almost 200,000 pages of material, requiring a DVD-ROM to store the massive databases.

This single disc contains all of the material on our separate Civil War related CD-ROM products, including:

• Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies
• Official Records of the Union and Confederate Navies
• Map Atlas of the Official Records (high resolution)
• National Archives Guide-Index (5 volumes)

as well as the important and hard to find Medical and Surgical History of the War of the Rebellion - exclusive to the DVD-ROM.

There is also important, non-official material:

• Dyer's Compendium
• Fox's Regimental Losses
• Southern Historical Society Papers
• Confederate Military History
• Campaigns of the Civil War
• Biographies of 7 Confederate Generals (J.A. Early, J.E.B. Stuart, J.B. Gordon, R.E. Lee, J. Longstreet, G.M. Sorrel, "Stonewall" Jackson)

All of this content is divided into two large databases, one for Official Records (plus Dyers and Fox's), and the other for non-official records material. Each database can be searched with a single query. This provides, for instance, the very powerful capability to search the entire Army, Navy, map, and Medical/Surgical Official Records at one time. There is simply no faster and easier way to search the records.
