Great photos with interesting information!
Anita
The period known as the "Civil War, the Great Rebellion, and the Secession" was the first photographed reporting brought into the homes of the citizens.
Carol R. Foote
This is truly a book that is hard to put down, and would be an ideal gift for anyone with an interest in Civil War history.

This book was above and beyond what I expected especially for the price I paid for it. My husband who doesn't normally read loves the book too. It's a great view into the past, into a war that tore this nation apart.

This is a glimps into America's past history that changed the country forever. The period known as the "Civil War, the Great Rebellion, and the Secession" was the first photographed reporting brought into the homes of the citizens. The men and women that photographed the dead and destruction had no idea just how important their work would be through the years.

Alexander Gardner and Matthew Brady are the two photographer icons from the American Civil War. Until photos from the Battle of Antietam were placed in galleries in New York City causing draft rioting there, the public (civilians) in both the North and South did not have a concrete understanding of the brutality of a conflict that would eventually kill upwards of 650,000 citizens; almost 2% of the American population. This is a coffee table book and photos can be scanned for use in classrooms. These photos are extremely relevant to the telling of that terrible war, and are the 19th century equivalent to the LIFE magazine photos of WW II, Korea, and Vietnam conflicts.

My disappointment was not about the quality of the book, nor the quality of the photography. The book cover suggests there will be photos of battle scenes. Instead,the majority of the pictures are of historic buildings associated with the Civil War. OK if that's what you are looking for.

Excellent narrative describing each photo and placing it into the overall context of the war. A great volume to add to anyone's Civil War collection as the photos bring the written word to life. Some are difficult to look at but war is war and they are a necessary part of the volume. Arrived exactly as descried and on time. Great job by the seller!

100 pictures approximately 7 x 9. I had seen several before but most were new to me. The captions are very special, having been written by Gardner himself in the somewhat flowery literary style of that time period.
