Everette Beach Long, is acknowledged among the culture of history reading America, as one of America's primary authorities regarding the United States Civil War/The War Between The States. The exhaustive work he and his wife created in 1985 may have left out a single shot, a scuffle or a rattle of sabers somewhere, someday, however I doubt there were very many. In his biography we read: "I got interested in the Civil War as a hobby," he explained. Then it became an avocation, then a way of life.

“In all the vast collection of books on the American Civil War there is no book like this one. It has been needed for a long time, both by the student and by the man who simply likes to read about the Civil War, but until now no one had the dedication or the encyclopedic knowledge to produce it. Here it is, at last—an almanac, or day-by-day recital down to the close conflict, written by Professor E. B. Long of the University of Wyoming. If there was a battlefield in the Civil War that this man has not visited personally, I do not know where it is; if there is an important collection of papers shedding light on the war that he has not examined, it would be hard to name it. It is no exaggeration whatsoever to say that this man knows more facts about the Civil War than any other man who ever lived. To know a subject thoroughly, of course, is one thing; to put the results of that knowledge into lucid prose of manageable compass is something else again. One does not need to examine many pages of this almanac to realize that Professor Long has succeeded admirably in the second task. Crammed into the margins of each page with facts, this book is never soporific. It is for the casual reader as well as for the specialist; it can even, as a matter of fact, be read straight through as a narrative, in which the dramatic and heart-stirring events of America's greatest time of trial pass before the eye on a day-to-day basis. A book like this has been needed for a long time, but up to now no one was able to write it. It should have a long life, and no one will ever need to do it again. It belongs on the somewhat restricted shelf of Civil War books that will be of permanent value.”Bruce Catton, from his foreword

I am repeating my review here as I think it applies to all of the purchases I have recently made
I purchased a number of books on touring Civil War sites as we are planning trips to do so this year and next, during the final sesquicentennial dates. It's difficult to know which will be the "best" resources and I suspect that many if not all will compliment the others. The sites books have information concisely packaged. The Road Trip Books bring an orientation to the scenes as they exist today (as well as historical perspective) and the Day-By Day books allow another method of quick reference.
I needed the maps as well to remain oriented. With all of them, I can find not only the immediate point of interest, but also the context into which the events will fit. If I had to select just one or two to concentrate upon, I would be hard pressed to decide. I am in the process of learning as much of the information as will stick. It may seem like a lot of duplicative effort, but repetition and evolving context are what helps me learn and I want to learn, to appreciate what I will be viewing.
I also have purchased Shelby Foote's anthology to re-read as I had misplaced those volumes purchased when I was a kid. After seeing him in Ken Burn's The Civil War, I remembered how witty and enjoyable he is. All of this is available on Amazon

The civil war day by day is an excellent book for the detailed civil war buff! You can take this book out with you in the field (it's heavy) but it's worth it to have the reference in your hand. This is my second copy of this book--the first I gave to my kids now that they are having families of their own and live quite close to many of these sites!

I was trying to trace the movements of my Great Grandfather as a member of the New York Volunteers during the Civil War. His movements resulted in his marriage which produced my Grandfather. Even though he was not named, his unit was assigned to The Army of the Potomac which according to the book were in many major battles. The book also has many facts that I was not aware of. It was interesting to read and understand the agony and suffering of the men on both sides. President Lincoln holds a higher degree of respect after reading this book.It was also interesting to see the conflict between the leaders on both sides. Not alot of detail but action on every page. The research was awesome. The book will stay stay in my small collection of history books which I will also use as a reference source.

This book is going to take me four years to read and I can't wait. Instead of a typical history book where you read about numerous events arranged as the author intended to emphasize his thesis, this book meters out the history in real time, exactly 150 years later. I bought this book as a replacement for the one I lost and used 25 years ago, when it was the 125th anniversary of the events. I was working on a job where we started each morning with readings from the book of events that had unfolded exactly 125 years before on that very date. Doing that was sort of like the next best thing to having lived it, the metering of the events in time seemed to make them more important, more meaningful, more patriotic.

Now I'll be doing it again, only this time 150 years after the fact.

I am the editor of the monthly Newsletter for our local Civil War Round Table, and always try to include a bit of history about the war. This book will be a great source of information about large and small events from that time. I got it because I exchange our Newsletter with another editor, and noticed that she uses the same book. Since I am limited in space but usually have a lot of information to pass along, the articles in this book are just long enough to inform, or at least to initiate some interest in a subject.

Wonder what was going on on this date during the Civil War? This book will answer that question, but that question only. Little or no social / political commentary in this book. Just the facts, Jack. At 1135 pages it is one of the biggest books I now own. However, in trying to keep the order of events, particularly when two - three battles were going on at the same time, over a period of days, this book goes far in that regard. The descriptions are brief, but greater details will have to be found in other places.
I like the book and it is at my left hand during this book writing I am trying to accomplish.

Must have for the years, hard to see all that happened without it.
It certainly covers every day of the Civil War. If you wanted to know what happened on a certain day of a month during the war, it will tell you every newsworthy event that happened in a brief format. I can't think of a better book to answer to the question of "What happened on this day in the Civil War?".
