Civil War Battlefields Then and Now (Then & Now)by James, Jr. Campi
Synopses & Reviews
Although more than 140 years have passed since Confederate guns first fired on Fort Sumter, our fascination with the American Civil War has not faded. With the advent of photography, the Civil War was the first time images captured the devastation of war in all of its brutal truth. Now you can see the infamous battlefields of the Civil War as they were then--and how they are today--in this all-new edition of Civil War Battlefields Then and Now.
- Witness the unfolding of the greatest conflict in U.S. history through incredible archival images, many of which were taken by Mathew Brady, the most celebrated photographer of the day.
- This unique book pairs archival photos with contemporary images of the Civil Wars most hallowed locations, like Fort Sumter, S.C. where the Confederate Stars and Bars flag was first unfurled after a siege.
- Explore some of the bloodiest battlefields, including Manassas, Harpers Ferry, Fredericksburg, Bull Run and other sacred ground.
- Visit Old Hagerstown Pike and Bloody Lane in Antietam, Maryland, site of the bloodiest day in American history. Striking images of the casualties are shocking even today.
