4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert Redd VINE VOICE on February 4, 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In November 2011 I had the pleasure of making a very short trip to the Manassas battlefield. I would love to get back and have more time on the field. A book like this would be an interesting one to carry along.

Garry Adelman, Vice President of the Center for Civil War Photography, is well positioned and more than knowledgeable enough to have put together a work such as this. His credentials can be read here.

Owing a debt of gratitude to William Frassanito, Adelman has put together a book which should be viewed and read by anybody interested in the study of Civil War photography or either of the Manassas/Bull Run battles. Adelman has accessed collections including the Library of Congress, National Archives, Army Heritage Education Center, the National Park Service, and others, allowing his book to become as he says a "then & then & then & now" presentation.

The book kicks off with a very brief history of the two battles including a series of much needed maps. A discussion of photographers and photographic styles follows. Adelman conveniently groups his chapters and thus the photos geographically allowing readers or battlefield stompers to easily keep up. For me including GPS coordinates would have been a nice addition though there is probably value in not disclosing these as the well meaning but careless could do damage to fragile locations.

For me, including photos of areas such as the 5th Alabama having carved their moniker into a railroad bridge pier, the photos of grave markers, and the photos of veterans returning to the field for monument dedications bring a humanity to these bloody battles.

Not much needs to be said about this book. It's very well done and will be a nice addition to any library of "then and now" books.
On the downside is the modern photographs.
As seems to be the case with many of these types of books, it seems as though little time is spent on the modern photos. You can tell this from the cover alone. You've got a matching photograph of a part of the main parking lot containing several vehicles. A better companion photograph would have included ZERO vehicles.

There are a couple other "now" photographs inside the book that lack quality. I don't understand why this occurs since the one thing authors have the most control over is the modern photographs. (I'd also encourage publishers to strongly consider going with color "now" photographs throughout these books, not just on the cover.)

That said, I did appreciate the old photographs that were chosen for this book - including many I'd not seen before.

The book is all expected it to be - then and now pictures - would be very useful to battlefield visitors in locating where various actions took place - it is hard to visualize the battlefield when the corn field now a parking lot, Highly recommended.
