The western theater of the Civil War stretched 600 miles north to south and 450 miles east to west from the Appalachians to the Mississippi. If the South lost the West, there would be little hope of preserving the Confederacy. Earl J. Hess discusses his comprehensive study of how Federal forces conquered and held the West and examines the geographical difficulties of conducting campaigns in a vast land.
