Overview

For nearly thirty years, Mort Künstler has focused his considerable artistic talent on interpreting the Civil War. In crafting his work to reflect poignant moments or critical instances of the conflict, he has turned to leading historians and scholars-such as Henry Steele Commager, James McPherson, William C. Davis, and James I. Robertson Jr.-for informative details that he has then translated on canvas to create an indelible image of this defining ordeal in America's history. More that 160 of these images-supplemented by preliminary sketches, early studies, and photographs of works in progress-are the basis for the four volumes in this series.
