With this beautifully illustrated photographic history, the acclaimed author of Civil War Medicine: Challenges and Triumphs has taken his expertise one step further and illuminated this history in images.

Images of Civil War Medicine: A Photographic History is an extensive collection of never-before-published photographs taken during the Civil War. It provides a visual encyclopedia of medical facilities, individual surgeons, and other medically related phenomena, accompanied by a text describing the main features of Civil War medicine.

A perfect gift for Civil War buffs, historians, and medical history enthusiasts, the text of this beautiful picture book also gives a complete overview of the medical experiences of the Civil War. The books extensive collection of individual Civil War surgeons displaying their uniforms and equipment will be of especial interest to Civil War reenactors, and its depiction of existing pre-war structures converted to hospitals will fascinate those interested in contemporary architecture. A major strength of the book is its large number of Cartes de Visites, or photographs of individual surgeons, which descendants of Civil War participants often collect.

Images of Civil War Medicine: A Photographic History covers all the main features of Civil War Medicine, including:

  • Confederate aspects of Civil War medicine
  • Contemporary prominent medical educators
  • Civil War hospitals and hospital stewards
  • Field hospitals
  • Surgery, dentistry, and embalming Nursing

With hundreds of previously unpublished photographs, Images of Civil War Medicine: A Photographic History is an essential addition to any enthusiasts collection."
