Civil War Chronicles

By December 9, 2019 No Comments

Narrative by a Civil War historian and seasoned writer is intermingled with abundant illustrations (mostly b&w historical photos) in an attractively produced volume. It begins with a history of slavery from its European origins to establishment in the New World, then documents the successive phases and various aspects of African American involvement in the war effort. Of special note is coverage of black Confederates, whose story is often neglected in histories of the Civil War. Oversize: 10×10.5<“> Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.
