The Official Records of the American Civil War: A Researcher's Guide. 2nd Edition.
Aimone, Alan Conrad
Official reports and correspondence of the American Civil War were printed by the United States Government Printing Office as the "Official Records, Army" (O.R.) in 129 volumes and the "Official Records, Navy" (N.O.R.) in 31 volumes. This corrected and expanded edition of the guide provides a brief historical sketch of the O.R. and N.O.R. and states the types of materials that were included and excluded. The editing procedures, organization of the material, distribution system, accompanying publications (atlas, maps, index), gaps in coverage, accuracy of the original documents, and other insights into the use of the O.R. and N.O.R. as research resources are discussed. Appendix A indexes diagrams, maps, pictures, and sketches in the O.R. and N.O.R. Appendix B is a bibliography of books and articles which either were not cited in the first edition of this guide or have been printed since its publication. (JAB)
