A Civil War: Army vs. Navy is a book published in 1996 by popular sports author John Feinstein. In it, Feinstein writes about his experiences spending time with both American football teams of the United States Military Academy (Army) and the United States Naval Academy (Navy) during the 1995 season, leading up to the annual Army–Navy Game at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia.

Contents

It follows the members of each football team throughout the season, through the highs and lows of the season.

Season

Coming into the 1995 season, Army had won the previous three Army–Navy Games by a total of five points (25-24 in 1992, 16-14 in 1993, and 22-20 in 1994).

Heading into 1995, Navy replaced previous head coach George Chaump with Charlie Weatherbie after going 3-8-0 in 1994. Navy started the season slowly, going 2-4, before winning three out of their next four games to enter the Army–Navy Game at 5-5. Despite the fact that a win over Army would give Navy a winning record, they would not be bowl eligible, as two of their five wins (Villanova and Delaware) were against teams from Division I-AA, which meant they did not count for bowl eligibility.

Army entered the game 4-5-1, and needed a win to finish the season .500.

Game

Neither team was eligible for the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy as the United States Air Force Academy team had defeated both Army and Navy earlier in the year to retain the trophy. On a cold, blustery day at Veterans Stadium, Army defeated Navy 14–13, to win their fourth straight Army–Navy Game.
