Abstract:

"This book is an informal history of life in the United States during the latter half of the nineteenth century. The text is designed both to explain and interpret the pictures, as captions would do, and to provide as connected and interesting a survey of social history as possible. The pictures have been chosen from Harper's Weekly, the most representative illustrated journal of the time. The triumph of the Weekly was its artists--men like Thomas Nast, Winslow Homer, C. A. Reinhart, E. A. Abbey, Frederick Remington, and their compeers, who perected journalistic illustration."-- Preface.
