The Civil War Centennial was beginning in earnest with this much-hyped battlefield reenactment. Founded in 1846, the Smithsonian has been collecting and preserving Civil War memorabilia of every description since the war itself. The day of battle dawned hot, and when it turned sultry, heat exhaustion began taking a toll on spectators and reenactors alike. Within these covers you will experience a rare look into the museum’s rich and unique coffers. Many of the daguerreotypes and painted portraits herein are much more than mere book illustrations, but in reality are family heirlooms which have been generously handed down to the American people.

This image of the seal is unparalleled in color and clarity and has remained largely unseen by the public until unearthed in the research for this book. Other highlights include images by the controversial artist Adalbert Volck; a private letter from Alfred Waude, one of the most prolific artists during the war; and a rare photo of Lincoln confidante Rebecca Pomeroy. In addition to a comprehensive collection of traditional wartime imagery (battlefields, soldiers, artillery, and more), The Civil War: A Visual History brings wartime culture to life with reprints of political cartoons, playing cards, collectible cards, newspaper articles, family photos and more.

So many books about the civil war and this one is a good mix of pictures and personal accounts of the average soldier in the form of letters to loved one.

I AM A CW NUT......LOVE actual photographs taken during and after the war
  • Phalaken
I had some difficulty reading some of the letters
and/or correspondence that was superimposed
over some of the visuals. Also, in some of the
photographs, many of the officers were not
identified, just listed as "staff". I was so sad at
all the senseless death and hate to believe
that we could do this to our own brothers. This
book really brought it home.
I ordered this for my boyfriend he loved it and was thrilled to get it. I briefly looked through it has some great stuff in it
