Civil War Photos: 24 Cards (Dover Postcards)
A treasury of 24 historic images documents the War Between the States. Taken while the medium was still in its infancy, these memorable photographs date from the days of America's second revolution. Featuring the work of such distinguished artists as Mathew Brady, Alexander Gardner, and T. H. O’Sullivan, they include portraits of Lincoln, Grant, Lee, Sherman, and other notables; camp scenes of soldiers at work and rest; battlefields from Gettysburg to Fredericksburg; the final days in the Confederate capital. Astonishingly clear and detailed, these cards offer a striking way to send messages or greetings to Civil War buffs as well as a gallery of scenes from American history. Each photo features a caption and informative notes.
