A reprint of a 1960 exploration of the visual representations of the Civil War created by contemporary illustrators, photographers, cartoonists, and commercial artists from the North, including examination of the way they worked, the kind of work they produced, and its impact. Includes both artists working on the home front, interpreting the issues and meaning of the war, and those serving as pictorial reporters in the field, abandoning the stereotypes they had brought with them as they confronted the realities of warfare.
