Portraits of Conflict A Photographic History of North Carolina in the Civil War by Richard M. McCaslin (review)

This attractive and well-designed photographic history fulfills in admirable fashion Richard McCaslin’s objective: “to present a carefully selected array of images that convey the experience of many citizens of the North State” during the Civil War. A major strength of McCaslin’s volume is the narrative account of North Carolina during the war, which places the photographs firmly in context.
