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 K#65533;nstler paired with stirring text by Pulitzer Prize-nominated author James I. Robertson, Jr.
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 K#65533;nstler'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.
