This is a rare and important pictorial history of the Civil War, chiefly illustrated with photographic reproductions made directly from glass plate negatives shot on the spot by famous Civil War photographers Matthew Brady and Alexander Gardner. The photographic material is accompanied by some artists renderings of battle scenes, etc.And a descriptive narrative told from the perspectives of the men who personally fought in the War of the Rebellion. The actual scenes of the Civil War have not yet been described in a way to afford a realistic idea of their character, although participants have given, from time to time, abundant individual narratives of what they saw and did.
The object of this MEMORIAL WAR BOOK is to present a series of pen pictures drawn from material that has never before been collected. It is not a history of the War, but a series of personal reminiscences of stirring adventures and lifelike descriptions of campaigns and battles, as the soldier saw them, with sufficient memoranda of the events attending the progress of the struggle to give the reader an understanding of their relative importance. It has been the aim of the author to avoid all technicalities, and describe the heroic deeds of Federal and Confederate soliders, just as the men themselves would do.
But the greatest value of this work is the absolute fidelity of the illustrations. Many were taken during the progress of hostilities, and are now given to the public for the first time. These were not sketches, but actual photographs, and can never be reproduced, as the originals are rapidly fading.The reader is thus placed on the very ground where the historic scenes of war occurred. Most of the illustrations in this work are reproductions from the celebrated photographs made by Matthew B. Brady and Alexander Gardner, under authority of the United States Government. These pictures are original photographs taken during the War of the Rebellion. It is more than a quarter century since the sun painted these real scenes of that great war, and the negatives have undergone chemical changes which makes it slow and difficult work to get prints from them. Of course, no more negatives can be made, as the scenes represented by this series of war views have passed away forever. The great value of these pictures is, therefore apparent. Happily our Government authorized, during the war, skillful photographers to catch with their cameras the reflection, as in a mirror, of very many of those thrilling and interesting scenes. These views vividly renew the memories of our war days. The camp, the march, the battlefields, the forts and trenches, the wounded, the prisoners, the dead, the hurriedly made graves, and many other of these once familiar scenes are photographically portrayed and perpetuated. These are not sketches or imaginary scenes, but are the original photographs taken on the spot. Chapter One Origin of the National Quarrel.
