Hardcover

Book Description
More than 350 photographs by Mathew Brady and his corps of cameramen, many of them never seen before, make this the most comprehensive collection of Civil War images ever published. Mathew Brady is arguably the most widely hailed documentarian of America’s bloodiest conflict: the Civil War. He and his cameramen created an indelible record of bravery, suffering, and sacrifice. Exhibitions of Brady’s photographs helped to introduce Americans to the brutal realities of war, and he was a pioneer in the field of photojournalism by providing his battlefield scenes and portrait photographs to Harper’s and other weekly publications of the time for use as woodcuts. Arranged by battle site and event, each of which is introduced by a brief explanatory essay, the volume offers carefully researched archival...

Book Review
Joanna Brady returns in J.A. Jance's ninth adventure featuring the Arizona sheriff. Joanna and Butch, her new husband, are trying to build their dream house, adjust to their marriage, and cope with the preteen mood swings of Joanna's 12-year-old daughter, Jenny. During a Girl Scout camping trip to Cochise County, Jenny and another girl sneak out of their tents after lights out to have a cigarette and stumble on the body of a murder victim. Joanna is initially more concerned about her daughter's misbehavior than the murder at Apache Pass--after all, smoking can kill you--but then Dora Matthews, Jenny's coconspirator, is killed. Joanna's fear that her daughter might be in the killer's sights adds an extra dose of adrenaline to her efforts to find the man who left the body for Jenny and Dora to find. Add that worry to the...

Book Review
Much of our image of the Civil War era comes from the photographs of Matthew Brady, and in Matthew Brady and the Image of History Mary Panzer, curator of photographs at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D. C., examines the work of this American icon. Brady, she writes, "used art to forge a relationship between photography and history, but when the memory of Brady the artist vanished, we came to accept his images as facts." Brady composed his photographs along classical models, always seeking the heroic in his subjects--who, until the advent of the Civil War, tended to be the business and social leaders who could afford his fees. Panzer's account of Brady's wartime work is especially revealing: where assistants like Timothy O'Sullivan and Alexander Gardner favored realistic studies of the dead in...

From School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-Brady photographed celebrities, politicians, and royalty, and was credited by Abraham Lincoln for helping him get elected to the presidency. The pinnacle of Brady's career was to document the Civil War. By photographing soldiers and the aftermath of battles, he brought the war to civilians by way of newspapers and magazines. He also hired people as photographers, while he acted as technical consultant, supervisor, promoter, and project manager. Pflueger explains his role and that of his primary assistants. Her book is interesting to read, well researched, and well documented. The biographical information is complete enough for high school students while not overwhelming for younger students. Many reproductions of Brady's work are included. Elizabeth Van Steenwyk's Mathew Brady (Watts, 1997) is...

Book Description
More often than not, we think of a country's history as a narrative, a sequential tale of great people and important events. But sometimes it's more revealing to think of history as a map of the eras, inventions, ideas, and people that have shaped our country for more than five hundred years, from the first visitors to North America's shores to the first years of the 21st century. Combining the unparalleled cartography and the extraordinary graphic archive of the National Geographic Society, this marvelous volume charts an engrossing web of connections, vividly displayed in a series of concise, self-contained essays and scores of maps that are the heart of a stunning visual chronicle that unfolds our history in a new and fascinating way. Each chapter is introduced by a time line that sets its subjects in context, then...

American Civil War: 365 Days
Margaret E. Wagner

April 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Featuring more than 500 images from the collections of the Library of Congress, this book offers a keen overview of the Civil War. Wagner's succinct accounts of prominent figures and events paint a rich portrait of public sentiment in the pre-and-post-war years, but it is the sheer number of photographs, lithographs, battlefield drawings, political cartoons, posters, maps and letters that distinguishes this book. From the realignment of roles among African-Americans, women and civilians to the contents of Lincoln's pockets upon his death, this book affords many unique glimpses of the bloodiest war in American history.Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Brady's Civil War
Webb B. Garrison
1585746932
Sept 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Unlike previous conflicts, when periodicals used artist sketches, the Civil War was the first major armed conflict to be illustrated with photographs. At the outset of the war in July 1861, Mathew Brady (1823-96), who was operating a photography studio in New York, set out to photograph the Battle of Bull Run in Manassas, VA. Brady went on to become the leading war photographer, amassing, with his assistants, some 6000 photographs. Lecturer and historian Garrison (The Amazing Civil War) has selected more than 300 of these images to be reproduced as vivid, large-size images for his book. The subject matter is diverse: portraits of political leaders and military commanders; and scenes of soldiers and carnage on the battlefield, care of the sick and wounded, and behind-the-lines home life. The emphasis is almost...
