This collection of Civil War Battle Summaries were originally researched and written by Dale E. Floyd and David W. Lowe, staff members of the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission and historians with the National Park Service. Edwin C. Bearss, Commission member and retired Chief Historian of the National Park Service, served as technical advisor. Editing and publication oversight was provided by Rebecca Shrimpton, Historic Preservation Planner, and Tanya M. Gossett, Historic Preservation Planner, both with the American Battlefield Protection Program (through a cooperative agreement with the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers).
The Battle Summaries posted below were extracted from the National Park Service website (nps.gov) in 2001, and are considered public domain. They have been enhanced by CivilWarTalk to include links, related images, and other related information, making them much more useful.
