Readers will Benefit by A Glance at the Following Note, which Imparts special meaning to the references that follow.

Much time is usually lost in referring to an Index of a work as extended and replete with statements of fact as the photographic history. The novel plan of these volumes, however, renders it possible for the reader to identify the nature of each reference, simply by remembering the distinctive character of the volume in question. For convenience, the titles of the ten volumes will now be repeated:

I. The opening battlesIV. the CavalryVIII. Soldier life—secret Service
April, 1861–July, 1862
II. Two years of grim WARV. Forts and ArtilleryIX. Poetry and Eloquence
August, 1862–April, 1864
III. the decisive battlesVI. the NAVIESX. Armies and Leaders
April, 1864–May, 1865
VII. Prisons and hospitals

Each volume number constitutes a characterization in itself. Thus, under the heading ‘Gettysburg’ the reference to ‘II., 234,’ clearly indicates the campaign narrative, since Volume II. is that one of the three volumes on battles which covers the period between August, 1862, and April, 1864, thus including the days of July, 1863, that witnessed the great battle.

But the further reference to Gettysburg, ‘IV., 238’ as clearly indicates a treatment of operations of the Cavalry, since IV. is the volume on Cavalry. Again, the reference under this same heading, ‘V., 40,’ must indicate the treatment of the events at Gettysburg in which a part was played by the Artillery, since V. is the Artillery volume.

Thus this History's classification of Civil War matters, volume by volume, has made it possible to present in the Index that follows a much greater number of items and references for the reader's convenience than has ever been the case previously in a work of this magnitude.

General officers. Any general officer, Union or Confederate, who served in the Civil War, not to be found in the Index that follows, can be placed as regards his full rank, name, and date of appointment by referring to the Roster immediately preceding.

bold face Arabic figures indicate illustrations. The Roman numerals indicate the number of the volume. The Arabic figures in bold face type indicate pages on which photographs appear (text references are in ordinary Roman type). Thus, under Pleasonton, A., ‘IV., 237,’ means that there is an illustration.
