People Magazine "In this pioneering study, the authors provide an extensively researched, scholarly text that places this popular art in its cultural and commercial context."###Publishers Weekly# "###The Confederate Image# is more than just a picture book. It is the product of an insightful examination of these popular prints and recognition of their long-ignored historical value. Its authors . . . have supplied an extensive and well-written text that tells a fascinating story of the creation of these images and how they added to or, at times, ran counter to the creation of the myth that is known as the Lost Cause."###Chicago Tribune# "A remarkable contribution to the literature and iconography of the Civil War. The impressible links between the prints, their creators, and some of the most dramatic scenes of the war involve the skillful use of new and little-used material. Most students of the war will find treasures here."Burke Davis
[A] fascinating, original new book.
This book is imaginative, insightful, and well-written.
The authors forge a new path through the well worn field of Civil War history.
A well-researched and interesting sidelight into a world of illusion.
