"This volume has been published on the occasion of the first monographic exhibition uniting the majority of the Civil War paintings of Winslow Homer ... The essays and related materials that inform this book offer a close reading of Homer's paintings in the cultural context of the Civil War period and the critical responses with which the works were originially received ... accompanied by a diverse array of period media illustrations and cartoons, as well as Homer's sketches"--Dustjacket.
