"In Eyewitness to War, the authors reveal how the public's desire to know and the new technology available created a revolution in communications; one that saw the rise of mass-circulation newspapers, illustrated memoirs, and a `wire service' using telegraph and steamship. The authors also explore the fledgling art of photography, review the early daguerreotypists who may have produced the photographs, and examine more than fifty daguerreotypes from the war. The prints, many in full color, are examined for historical accuracy as well as artistry."--the publisher.
