About this item

The American companion to A History of the World in 100 Objects: A fresh, visual perspective on the Civil War

From a soldiers diary with the pencil still attached to John Browns pike, the Emancipation Proclamation, a Confederate Palmetto flag, and the leaves from Abraham Lincolns bier, here is a unique and surprisingly intimate look at the Civil War.

Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer sheds new light on the war by examining fifty objects from the New-York Historical Societys acclaimed collection. A daguerreotype of an elderly, dignified ex-slave, whose unblinking stare still mesmerizes; a soldiers footlocker still packed with its contents; Grants handwritten terms of surrender at Appomattoxthe stories these objects tell are rich, poignant, sometimes painful, and always fascinating. They illuminate the conflict from all perspectivesUnion and Confederate, military and civilian, black and white, male and femaleand give readers a deeply human sense of the war.

With an introduction from Pulitzer Prize winner Eric Foner and more than eighty photographs, The Civil War in 50 Objects is the perfect companion for readers and history fans to commemorate the 150th anniversaries of both the Battle of Gettysburg and Lincolns Gettysburg Address.
