     Many years ago, Civil War Interactive conducted a survey of its readers in order to determine the Top 50 Civil War Books of All-Time. After almost a decade, it was time to do it again.

The newest results have now been compiled. We want to thank the hundreds of readers who took the time to help us with this. Some things about the new results that we found interesting:

  • there was a total of 621 entries containing 1863 votes.
  • only one book remained in the exact position it held 10 years ago.
  • 7 books which were on the last list moved up in ranking
  • 13 books which were on the last list moved down in ranking
  • An amazing 29 books which didn't make it on the list 10 years ago made it this time.
  • We had voters from 8 different countries ( US, Canada, England, France, Germany, Russia, Sweden and Brazil)
  • The books which rank 11th and 12th this year were not on the last list, and they're from the same author.

You can view the complete list by clicking the below link. And congratulations to Jerome M. Andrews of Roseville, MN. Jerome is the random winner, drawn from all entries, of Le Roy Fitch: The Civil War Career of a Union River Gunboat Commander . Watch your mailbox Jerome, and thanks again to all of you.
