"Not just for children! Bought two for a Mort Kunstler lover I know!"

"Just right for grade school aged kids. Very good illustrations."

"For a book that is only 46 pages, there is a lot covered in a short amount of space...The paintings on each page are breathtaking. There is life and action in each picture...I would buy it for the paintings alone, but the text is interesting and readable as well."

Take a visual journey through the events of the Civil War with the art of Mort Künstler

The Civil War takes readers on a chronological journey of the most important events of the conflict with action-packed illustrations by Mort Künstler—the most collected Civil War artist in the world—and inquiry-based text by historian James I. Robertson, Jr. With close readings of Künstler’s paintings, young readers can parse the details of key moments of the war, including the Battle of Bull Run, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the Gettysburg Address, to learn how it really felt to be there. A timeline and short biographies of notable figures in the war, such as generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, provide excellent supplements to each narrative chapter

While the American Revolution resulted in the creation of a new nation, the Civil War was a battle among citizens—the Union army against the Confederate, sometimes even brother against brother. As the most popular Civil War artist in the world, Künstler presents expansive, detailed artworks that make each battle come alive. From high-action combat scenes to decorated generals deliberating in exquisitely rendered lamp-lit camps, each painting captures a historically accurate, visually rich portrait of the war from both sides. No other living artist on the Civil War has been as celebrated as Künstler, and his work continues to attract history lovers of all ages.

Mort Künstler is an American painter and the world's most collected Civil War Artist.

James I. Robertson, Jr. is a nationally recognized American Historian and the author of many books, including the ALA award winning biography Stonewall Jackson.
