Each "card" shows the date, a succinct description and a zoomable map for the event.
You can flip the "card" over to read the Wikipedia article describing the event.
You can sort your "deck" of events using two mechanisms:
- Sort by day and month for a "this day in history" view.
- Select a start date and then sort by day, month and year for a true chronological sequence of events from that date onwards.
The data for American Civil War Daily comes from the American Civil War Timeline Project at Cannonade.Net. This is a community contributed project to collect time and place data for the war. You can come to the site to browse the timeline or even log in and contribute new data.
The Timeline Project currently indexes over 400 hundred data points with new entries being added daily. If a significant event isn't in the database yet, it soon will be.
This app recreates the experience of what it would have been like to read the headlines and news stories unfolding day-by-day... much like the BBC or New York Times widget do for news today.
American Civil War Gazette incorporates articles from both Northern and Southern newspapers. However, with the advantage of hindsight ACW Gazette attempts to have the stories reveal on the date (and time where possible) of the actual events rather than on the actual date of publication... which was often several days after the actual event.
To add the widget to your home screen, find a screen that has one complete row clear and hold your finger on the screen until the "Add to Home" menu pops up.
Then, select "Widget" and "American Civil War Gazette". The widget is live and will update every 30 minutes.

July 1862 opens with the last of the Seven Days Battles, the Battle of Malvern Hill. Although the bulk of the Seven Days Battles (Beaver Creek Dam, Gaine's Mill, et. al.) occurred in June, most Northern newpapers printed little information until several days into July. The remainder of July saw little action on the battlefield relative to the previous or following months, giving the newspapers time to focus on the implications of McClellan's retreat to Harrison's Landing.
In addition to the Battle of Malvern Hill, other prominent battles included the Battle of Cotton Plant (Hill's Plantation) and the First Battle of Murfreesboro'.
News of McClellan's retreat also reached the U.K. in July, and as the prospect of a longer war increased, talk of intervention by France, the U.K. or both increased, and was particularly favored by the South.
In addition to the celebration of the second 4th of July since the war began, the continuing shelling and siege of Vicksburg featured prominently in the columns of papers in both the North and the South.
Also of importance was the response to Lincoln's call for 300,000 3-year enlistments which spurred significant debate as to whether there would be a draft. The New York Times followed the progress of the recruiting efforts daily.

"The statements of correspondents ignorant of the real facts, or writing in the interests of particular commands, too often form the basis of newspaper comments and of public opinion in regard to military operations; and events follow so rapidly on the heels of each other that first impressions rarely give way to more correct views founded on authentic accounts."

In late April 1863, Grant would undertake a new and bold campaign against Vicksburg and the Confederate defenders under John Pemberton. After conducting a surprise landing below Vicksburg at Bruinsburg, Mississippi, Grant’s forces would rapidly move inland, pushing back the threat posed by Joseph E. Johnston’s forces near Jackson. Once his rear was clear, Grant would move back towards Vicksburg, from the East.
Victories at Champion Hill and Big Black Bridge would leave Pemberton’s forces weakened and besieged in Vicksburg. With the fall of Vicksburg and the surrender of Pemberton’s forces on July 4, 1863, one of the greatest Union victories of the Civil War would be secured.
