HIS 120: The U.S. Until 1865, Dr. Don Fisher: Find Reference Books

This guide will help you find resources for your Civil War Regiment Research Project.

Reference Books for your assignment

All of these books are available on the 3rd floor of the Library.  Ask a Reference Librarian for help in finding them.  They are great sources of background information, and  good places to start your research.  Use the indexes in the backs of the books to search for a particular battle, like "Cold Harbor," or for any other topic you are researching.
