About The Civil War Book Shop

My name is Michael Wise, and I am the proprietor of The Civil War Book Shop. I have been a Civil War buff since grade school, and enjoy visiting battle fields, reading about the war, and discussing it with friends. I am an avid reader, and enjoy browsing through book stores, making that special find and racing home to read it. For several years I have taken advantage of ordering books online, enjoying the convenience of door step delivery. After much research, I determined there is room for an internet book retailer devoted to the serious Civil War reader, collector, and history buff. For nearly five years The Civil War Book Shop has offered a select line of new, used, and collectible books. Along with American Civil War related books, we also offer items in categories such as Early American History, Native American, World War II, Other Wars, Business, Human Interest, Religion, Cooking, Gardening, Quilting, etc. These items are those that capture my interest (and my wife\'s) and that I think may interest others. I try to add new items each week, so check our store front often. My goal is to provide customers with the level of value, service, and convenience for which only the finest traditional, independent retailers are known.
