Abstract:

This is the story of a group of Confederate soldiers' artists, who, each in his own way, produced oil sketches, pen, ink, and pencil drawings of their Civil War experiences. These illustrator-correspondents went into the field and worked from both their firsthand observations and the accounts of the soldiers around them. They portrayed all aspects of that bloody war from the tedium of trench warfare and camp life to the violent moments of combat.

This is the intertwined story of both these men and their work, an enduring legacy of Americans at war.
