Civil War Eyewitnesses: An Annotated Bibliography of Books and Articles, 1986-1996


Sinisi, Kyle S., South Carolina Historical Magazine


Civil War Eyewitnesses: An Annotated Bibliography of Books and Articles, 1986-- 1996. By Garold L. Cole with a foreword by James 1. Robertson (Columbia: University of South Carolina Press, 2000. Pp. 1x, 271; $39.95, cloth.)

This book is an excellent sequel to Garold Cole's earlier Civil War Eyewitnesses: An Annotated Bibliography of Books and Articles, 1955-1986. The latest volume follows the same format as the first and helps to provide some sense of order to the mountain of literature that is Civil War historiography.

Cole's annotated bibliography lists personal narratives, memoirs, letters and diaries published between 1986 and 1996. It also includes citations for republished, or newly edited, primary sources. Cole divides his bibliography into two sections dealing with the North and the South and a more generalized section containing anthologies and foreign traveler's accounts. Combined, there are 596 entries scoured from various electronic databases and the pages of scholarly journals and Civil War publications. The roster of entries is impressive, but it is marred slightly by some omissions that perhaps only the specialist in a given topic of the war would catch. Smaller, more obscure presses and the publications of county historical societies seem susceptible to such omission. Nevertheless, Cole's citations are complemented well by an extensive and user-friendly index that details all authors, editors, battles, units, titles of books and general subject matter.

It should be noted that this volume is more than just a laundry list of bibliographic citations.
