About this title

Synopsis:

With over 240 photographs, maps, and related documents, McCaslin details the physical and spiritual suffering of the ordinary recruit in his fight for his country, its land, and his family's way of life.

Review:

The Civil War presented the first major opportunity to photograph fighting men and the places they fought and to create an extensive visual record of war. Most collections of such photographs, however, have focused on the leaders of the conflict and have treated the images only as illustrations for traditional narratives. Centering on the common solider, Portraits of Conflict: A Photographic History of South Carolina in the Civil War, tells the story of the individuals - their heroism and fear, the boredom and the misery they experienced. With over 240 photographs, three maps, and related documents, Richard McCaslin details the physical and spiritual suffering of the ordinary recruit in his fight for his country, its land, and his family's way of life. By carefully matching available written sources to photographs, the author has provided a unique opportunity for the reader to see the war on a human scale that may always elude conventional narratives. Included in this photo-journalistic album are the place and date for birth and death of many of the soldiers mentioned. Each picture has a complete caption to identify the subject and the type of photograph represented. The Gettysburg Campaign Albert A.
