9780810958470: The American Civil War: 365 Days

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.

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School This illustrated history is a best buy. The black-and-white photographs and color reproductions are of excellent quality and the narrative is clear as well. The book is organized topically rather than chronologically, which takes getting used to. The topics include: Irrepressible Conflict (the causes of the war), Gathering Momentum (opening battles), War in the East (Bull Run to Appomattox), Wartime Politics (North, South, and foreign), War on the Water, Fighting for Freedom (the story of African Americans), Turning Points, and so on. Daily occurrences that run consecutively on each page are never cued to the illustrations on those pages, and the events jump from year to year within the main topics. The pages are not numbered. The chapter titles are the months of the year, but chapter events are never related to the month of the chapter title. The index, however, is cued to the date e.g., Dred Scott is mentioned in the index on 1/12, 1/13, and 1/15, meaning readers will find him mentioned on pages January 12, January 13, and January 15. Idiosyncrasies aside, this is a uniquely high-quality visual history. Alan Gropman, National Defense University, Washington, DC

Descripción Abrams, United States, 2006. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The American Civil War: 365 Days comprises a vivid visual history of one of the most tumultuous and pivotally important eras in the history of the USA. From pre-war political clashes over slavery in the South, to the surrender of Robert E. Lee s Army, The American Civil War constitutes a telling mosaic of America s most costly and rending conflict. Each illustration is placed in context by complementary text - which includes many quotations from original letters and diaries of Civil War soldiers, politicians and nurses as well as from memoirs and diaries published soon after the war. Organised into twelve thematic categories, this book covers the breadth of this pivotal event in U.S. history, including the battles, the politics, the home front and various aspects of the struggle to end slavery. This book also includes drawings by Civil War artist-correspondents; contemporary photographs; manuscript maps; and contemporary colour lithographs; as well as woodcuts from Civil War-era illustrated newspapers, the manuscript of the Gettysburg Address, political and theatrical posters and recruiting broadsides.
