Overview
A remarkable work of documentary history, The Last Muster is a collection of rare nineteenth-century photographic images--primarily daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and carte des visite paper photographs--of the Revolutionary War generation. This extraordinary collection of images assigns faces to an un-illustrated war and tells the stories of our nation's founding fathers and mothers; updating and supplementing research last collected and published over a century ago. In her comprehensive introduction, author Maureen Taylor explains how she came to this project and collected the images. She also describes her exhaustive primary source research involved in dating and identifying each image and investigating the story and genealogy of each subject. The array of seventy images is expansive and includes veterans, loyalists, Native Americans, African Americans, children who witnessed battles and and soldiers, and women who nursed the wounded and even took up arms themselves. Although the faces that gaze at the reader are old and wizened, the stories they tell are of youthful bravery in the young days of the republic. The Last Muster is a much-needed contribution to the history of the American Revolution, the early Republic, and the history of Photography. Through these portraits and the accompanying narrative, readers will have the opportunity to relive the Revolutionary War.
