Publisher's Description

This splendid collection of more than 200 rare illustrations — selected from such periodicals as Harper's Weekly, Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, and the Illustrated London News — captures the sweeping drama of the American Civil War as it was reported in the pictorial press of the period. Sketched by artists who were at the scene when these momentous events unfolded, these graphic illustrations span the entire war chronologically, from the opening shots fired at Fort Sumter in 1861; the battles of Bull Run, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg; the war in the West and the fall of Vicksburg to Grant's overland campaign, Sherman's destruction of Atlanta, and the Confederate surrender at Appomattox in 1865. Supplementary sections present views of the naval war and activities on the home fronts in both the North and the South. Informative captions accompany illustrations of major battles, the weapons in use, logistics and strategy, and historical figures involved. Commercial artists and designers will find this collection of permission-free art a valuable source for use in a variety of print assignments. Civil War buffs and other interested readers will treasure this compelling pictorial history. Approximately 225 black-and-white illustrations.
