"In this striking chronicle, the American Civil War comes to life through the lenses of such extraordinary photographers as Alexander Gardner, Timothy O'Sullivan, Jay D. Edwards, J.W. Petty, A.J. Russell, Mathew Brady and his numerous assistants, and scores of others. Found in attics, old albums, on forgotten shelves in libraries and archives, the images of real faces and places reveal the underlying drama, tragedies, and pain of a war that split one nation into two. Essays by eminent Civil War scholars and the entertaining, informative captions accompanying each picture highlight the viewpoints of citizens and soldiers often neglected in history texts and illuminate in detail the nature of Civil War leadership and command, the spirit of the individual regiments, the role of the oft-forgotten navies on both sides, and the continental scope of the war and its impact on the land and on communities large and small"--Cover
