"Don Troiani probably knows more about how Civil War soldiers looked and were equipped than anyone else since the veterans themselves. His paintings are unparalleled in evoking Civil War military culture-both on the battlefield and in camp." --Gary W. Gallagher, author of The Confederate War

"Don Troiani is unsurpassed at recreating, with absolute fidelity, the decisive moments of great battles." --Stephen W. Sears, author of Chancellorsville

In the world of historical painting, Don Troiani stands alone, universally acclaimed for the accuracy, drama, and sensitivity of his depictions of America's past. His Civil War paintings and limited edition prints hang in the finest collections in the country and are noted internationally as well. Don Troiani's Civil War-the first collection of his Civil War art to appear in book form-is a chronological depiction of every face of the war. His most famous and popular works-most of which are in private collections and unavailable for viewing-are all represented here; many rarer pieces, which are not even available in print form, are also included.

Troiani presents in a beautiful landscape format his unique view of the war and the men who fought it. Each painting is accompanied by an extensive background text by noted historian Brian C. Pohanka, series consultant for Civil War Journal. The result is a visual record that no other book can match. Includes 144 paintings, 112 in color.
