This book brings together more than 200 photographs covering the  bloody years of the American Civil War, published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name at the Metropolitan Museum of New York. Through the scenes of battle, the photographers on the ground sought to record the portraits of the solders preparing to fight the “enemy” , of president Lincoln and of his assassin, John Wilkes Booth, thereby documenting a deep wound that is still present in the American psyche.

The photographs are drawn from the Metropolitan’s own holdings and from private collections, and are shown here for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, the bloodiest combat in the American Civil War.
