Excerpt from the introduction by Phil Patton

We think of the Civil War as the first one brought home by photographs, but with the bulky equipment of the time, the photographers could arrive only after the fighting stopped….It was left to newspaper artists, including Winslow Homer as well as the lithographs of Currier & Ives, to capture dramatic and casual moments in the lives of soldiers.
