KIRKUS REVIEW

Subtitled An Illustrated History of Southerners at War, this Civil War book contains 300 photographs by Confederate photographers, together with a concise and unbiased factual account of life in the Confederacy during the Civil War. The text holding the pictures together is excellent, emphasizing aspects of political and social life rather than military campaigns. It includes brief, objective biographies of outstanding southerners. The book tells of ""High Brass"" and lesser officers and their propensity to fight duels. Life in the army, town and country; armaments and industry; Negroes and the influence of Southern ministers on the belief in the righteousness of slavery are among the topics covered. The book ends with the final collapse of the Confederacy. A unique volume for Civil War buffs.
