A monumental series reproducing an unparalleled pictorial record of the Civil War. The titles of each of the volumes are as follows: [vol. I] SHADOWS OF THE STORM; [vol. II] THE GUNS OF '62; [vol. III] THE EMBATTLED CONFEDERACY; [vol. IV] FIGHTING FOR TIME; [vol. V] THE SOUTH BESIEGED; [vol. VI} THE END OF AN ERA. This monumental work supercedes Miller's PHOTOGRAPHIC HISTORY OF THE CIVIL WAR, in both content of the text, sheer mumber of images, and most importantly, it identifies the photographers.
