Bibliography of Civil War Articles

By John A. Miller

This is a list of our resources that I used to write all my articles on the Civil War that you read on Emmitsburg.net. I thought I add these resources to the website in order for the viewer to see where I got my information. These all are very good books and writings that other authors have published and I highly recommend you the viewer to go out and find some of these books and read them. Because of the resources I was able to give Emmitsburg and Monterey its own history.
