The American Civil War was the first war whose effects could be captured by the camera. Photographers like Matthew Brady brought the visceral reality of war to average Americans with this new technology. Today these images reveal the contrast between the historic events as they happened, and the relative peace and calm of the historic sites preserved today by the National Park Service.
Civil War Battlefields: Then and Now puts the contrast of past and present on display. Full of beautiful historic and contemporary photos, this book tells a chronological, visual story of the Civil War. Put it on your coffee table and let it inspire visits to the hallowed grounds of our National Battlefields and Military Parks.
