The Civil War tore the nation apart, pitting brother against brother. Marking the sesquicentennial of this epic struggle for America's soul, which began in 1861, For Us the Living features stunning paintings by acclaimed Civil War artist Mort Künstler paired with stirring text by Pulitzer Prize-nominated author James I. Robertson*, Jr. Foreword by Harold Holzer, Metropolitan Museum of Art
No other Civil War book equals this breathtaking volume, which brings the crisis to life through eyewitness accounts and dramatic art. Robertson insightfully describes key events in each year of the conflict, weaving his words together with those of the people who lived through it-and Künstler's masterful paintings illuminate it all.
For Us the Living will give readers the sense of being there at this critical moment in American history.
*James I. Robertson is the director of the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech. He has written more than 15 books and has received every major award given in the field of Civil War history. His biography of Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
