|Sujet: CROSSROADS OF CONFLICT Jeu 8 Mar - 23:15|| |
The impact of the Civil War on Georgia was greater than any other event in the state's history. Approximately eleven thousand Georgians were killed and the state suffered more than one hundred thousand in total casualties. Georgia was extremely influential in this nation's most tragic conflict, and the war touched every corner of the state.
Crossroads of Conflict covers 350 historic sites in detail, bringing the experience of the war to life. The book is arranged geographically, separating the state into nine distinct regions. Beginning in northeast Georgia, sites are followed west to east, north to south. Detailed maps of each region are supplemented by inset maps of urban areas. For each site, the guide provides a detailed history, driving directions, online resources, and GPS coordinates.
Color photographs and period images document the locations, which include battlefields (major and minor), POW camps, hospitals, houses, buildings, bridges, cemeteries, and monuments. The war experiences of all Georgians, not just soldiers, are addressed within the guide's informative text, and a detailed chronology is included.
