Reviews

"Splendid . . . a wonderful enhancement of the show itself."--New York Review of Books
"This is now the definitive source for our visual knowledge of the war and especially of its participants. Rosenheim's focus on portraiture of soldiers humanizes long-familiar post-battlefield images of bloating corpses. His writing is crisp and full of detail. Best of all, the catalogue doesn't just recount the photography of the war, it suggests how photography of the Civil War has influenced American art ever since."--Tyler Green, Modern Art Notes
