Foreword by James I. Robertson, Jr.
Text based on the writings of Rod Gragg, Mort Künstler, James M. McPherson, and James I. Robertson, Jr.

For twenty years, Mort Künstler has focused his considerable artistic talent on interpreting the Civil War through his paintings. In doing so, he has turned to leading historians and scholars for information that he has then translated on canvas to create an indelible image of this defining ordeal in America's history. More than 160 of those images — supplemented by preliminary sketches, early studies, and photographs of works in progress — are the basis for the four volumes in this series.

Volume 4 follows the course of the war from the battle of Gettysburg (July 1-3, 1863) through the end of the war at Appomattox (April 9, 1865). In addition to portraying scenes from the conflict, Künstler also explores the human side of the struggle. Thus he has produced thoughtful studies of leaders at decisive moments, instances of daily camp life for the soldiers, and the emotional state of civilians and soldiers North and South as the war grounds to its end.
