The Civil War Through the Camera
1912. Hundreds of vivid photographs actually taken in Civil War times. Sixteen reproductions of Famous War Paintings. With The New Text History. From bombardment of Fort Sumter to the Union Cavalry's triumphant victory parade down Pennsylvania Avenue, here is America's bloodiest and most dramatic struggle captured for eternity in hundreds of photographs and penetrating commentary. No historical narrative could, on its own, convey the grim bitterness and waste of this divisive war more graphically than these early photographs.
