Featuring more than 500 images from the collections of the Library of Congress, this book offers a keen overview of the Civil War. Wagner's succinct accounts of prominent figures and events paint a rich portrait of public sentiment in the pre-and-post-war years, but it is the sheer number of photographs, lithographs, battlefield drawings, political cartoons, posters, maps and letters that distinguishes this book. From the realignment of roles among African-Americans, women and civilians to the contents of Lincoln's pockets upon his death, this book affords many unique glimpses of the bloodiest war in American history.
