Abstract:

In the media, political perspective often alters the view of reality. The Words of War illustrates this by placing in juxtaposition the reportage of The New York Times and The Charleston Mercury's coverage of eighteen battles from Fort Sumter to Appomattox Court House. Following each battle's coverage is a synopsis of each battle as the modern historian looks back at it. Setting up each battle's coverage is a commentary by the author in which he provides interesting background information on some of the individuals participating in the action. Sketches by war artists sent by Harper's Weekly and Frank Leslie's Illustrated Magazine lend visual color to each battle's coverage. The Words of War contains an index and bibliography.
