Description: Many Civil War books highlight tactics, battles, and major figures, often ignoring the millions of individual soldiers who fought and sacrificed anonymously. But through combining stark, unposed photographs of Civil War reenactors with sound historical research, photographer and reenactor Ray Carson has captured the reality of the common soldier's life. The book combines the intimacy and intensity of modern photojournalism with the historical feel of 1860s photography. Photographs of camp life, daily activities, medical care, and battle are supplemented with text gleaned from primary sources such as soldiers' diaries and letters.. 8" x 11". 128 pages.75 b/w photos, 56 color photos
