By Michael G. Kraus, David M. Neville, and Kenneth C. Turner

Foreword by Edward L. Ayers, author of In the Presence of Mine Enemies: Civil War in the Heart of America and president, University of Richmond

The Civil War in Pennsylvania History: A Photographic History is the first photo history of the war in the Commonwealth.  Most of the images are from private collectors and have never been published.

"The Keystone State has long needed a photographic history worthy of its importance and its sacrifices during the American Civil War. Authors Kraus, Neville, and Turner have provided precisely that — an album marked by breathtaking beauty and expert commentary. This is a book to study, and ultimately, to treasure."

~ Harold Holzer, chairman, Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Foundation


"This outstanding compilation of images and artifacts is beautifully designed and packed with fascinating personal interest stories. Truly riveting — a benchmark of excellence for others to emulate!"

~ Don Troiani, historical military artist and author
