With a topic on every page, The Civil War Visual Encyclopedia tells the story of the war using simple explanations and stunning photographs. Profiles on decisive battles, strategic maps, political leaders, military commanders, naval vessels, uniforms, weapons, and equipment shine a light on the key events and other turning points during the five years of fighting. Find out about the child soldiers who fought valiantly and the healthcare heroes who made groundbreaking differences. Read about the railroads and how the media reported on the war via the telegraph! Discover eyewitness accounts and personal letters. Learn about the reasons behind the war and its lasting impact: the abolition of slavery. In a book that combined my love for history and literature, I worked on all aspects of each spread – from picture research and image metadata verification to editing the text to make it crisp and comprehensible and placing it in the final layout.
