5.0 out of 5 stars Seeing Gettysburg As It Was, December 2, 2006
This review is from: Early Photography at Gettysburg (Paperback)
Although the majority of this book is about the battle that took place in Gettysburg, as well as its after-effects, I have to mention that there is quite a bit of scholarly information on the town itself. The pictures, and especially the accompanying text for each photo, gives the reader a window-through-time view of the little village shortly before and just after the events of early July 1863 so one can see exactly what those who were there saw. Gives me chills just thinking about it.
I never realized just how well photographically documented this particular battle was until I flipped through the pages of Mr. Frassanito's books. The then and now photos are fantastic, and the maps of each section where the shots were taken was an excellent inclusion.
Having been to Gettysburg twice in the last two years, I made myself a promise that I will not return without this author's two books ('Journey Through Time' is the other I am alluding to) as I find these to be an invaluable resource that, when I do return in '08, will help me to get a better understanding of the lay of the land, so to speak.
Truly a great and complete overview of that horrific battle. A must for Civil War fans.
