The Civil War in photographs

Image of item
In 1861, the art of photography came of age just as Civil War erupted and tore the United States apart. As a result, more than 2,000 photographers covered the conflict, making it the first historical event captured fully by the camera. Noted historian William C. Davis has chosen the finest of these images, enhancing the pictures with illuminating text that places them in context. Many of these evocative photos are rarely seen, and portray not only the battles and their tragic aftermath, but also the people caught in the devastation.
