American Civil War 1861-1865

One of the most destructive Civil Wars in world history – brother against brother, uncle against nephew. Many thousands killed in action and died of disease (600,000). It may have stopped slavery but the South remains very resentful to this day. Good titles in stock.

I apologise for the lack of catalogues issuing from this fair establishment but I've been banged up in Hollywood Hospital for these last 3 months with ENDOCARDITIS!!! It's a bug in the lining of the heart which has been very difficult to kill. After 95 odd days in hospital being drow...
