Publisher Comments:

Documenting the rise and fall of the Confederacy during the Civil War was a new figure on the battlefield: the war photographer. It was the first major conflict to be recorded by cameras, and men such as Mathew Brady, George Barnard, Timothy OSullivan, and Alexander Gardner made their names by capturing unforgettable images of the death and destruction brought about by war. We have their photographs of sites such as Fort Sumter and Gettysburg in those crucial moments--but what do those sites look like today, so many years later?

Civil War Battlefields Then and Now juxtaposes their classic images with photos of the sites as they look now. Some, like Hagerstown Pike, are remarkably well preserved, while others, like Fort Sedgwick, no longer exist. At the end of the war, many cities, industries, and railroads lay in ruins--but today they are once again bustling sites of commerce and residence. Arranged chronologically, Civil War Battlefields Then and Now is a fascinating look at the crucial sites of our nations history.
