More Information:
Presented in 12 thematic sections, this visual history of America's epochal conflict features more than 500 items drawn from the unparalleled collections of the Library of Congress, including Mathew Brady's iconic photographs; period drawings, lithographs, and woodcuts; important manuscripts like the Gettysburg Address; political and theatrical posters; and ephemera like the contents of Lincoln's pockets the night he was assassinated. A running timeline notes an important-or intriguing lesser-known-event for each calendar day, while excerpts from diaries, letters, speeches, postwar memoirs, and other first-person accounts lend immediacy to the informative text. A vivid mix of words and images, The American Civil War: 365 Days captures the drama, the horror, the epic sweep, and the human toll of this unparalleled American clash at arms like no other book before it.
