Living Monuments: Confederate Soldiers' Homes in the New South

While battlefield parks and memorials erected in town squares and cemeteries have served to commemorate southern valor in the Civil War, Confederate soldiers' homes were actually 'living monuments' to the Lost Cause, housing the very men who made that cause their own.  R.B.

Remembering the Civil War

Remembering the Civil War

As early as 1865, survivors of the Civil War were acutely aware that people were purposefully shaping what would be remembered about the war and what would be omitted from the historical record. In Remembering the Civil War, Caroline E. Janney examines how the war generation--men and women, black and white, Unionists and Confederates--crafted and protected their memories of the nation's greatest conflict. Janney maintains that the participants never fully embraced the reconciliation so famously represented in handshakes across stone walls.

The Civil War: a History in 3D

Between 1860 and 1910, stereoscopes were very popular - almost every parlor contained one.  Many of the photographers who chronicled the American Civil War employed stereographic cameras to record images of that momentous struggle.  The stereo cards that they produced contain two images - one for each eye  When viewed with the stereoscope, each eye sees only the appropriate image, producing the illusion of three dimensions.  The photographs in this book were taken between 1861 and 1865.  They have been digitally restored and converted to red/cyan anaglyphs so that e
