Quotes from the Authors

“In this volume, our goal was to use Civil War newspapers to tell the story of the war as it was happening. Our desire was to exhibit a large variety of newspapers, both Northern and Southern, that show how each side in this conflict perceived the progress of the war and conveyed this assessment to its readers. Many of the newspapers and broadsides illustrated in this book are unique copies in private hands. All have been selected for their large headlines, visual appeal, rarity, or graphical text appeal. We have tried to include as many of the major battles and personalities of the war as space allowed. We have added captions to explain the significance of each newspaper. It is the hope of the authors that readers will enjoy the unique approach to history and will be stimulated to even more interest in the American Civil War.”

-Dr. Stephen A. Goldman and Mr. Eric C. Caren
