The Civil War continues to have a hold on Americans and stands as the definitive historical battle in U.S. history. Books, photos, memoirs, art and more continue to be published on the subject, but nowhere is this pictorial record more penetrating and vibrant than presented in this book. With photography in its infancy, Matthew Brady successfully showed us the history and legacy of the Civil War in his capacity as now legendary official photographer of the Civil War. Complete with 16 dramatic paintings in full color by Henry Ogden and other fine military artists, this book gives a provocative pictorial account of the war as it was happening. But this is more than a collection of photos. It is a complete narrative with maps and chronological summaries of the battles. This stunning collectors edition is sure to be a cherished addition to any Civil War or history library.
