Overview
Even though they fought on opposing sides, most soldiers in the Civil War were similarly educated, came from rural backgrounds, spoke the same language, and knew the same songs. They also shared the same hazards and hardships of an enlisted man s life. In this informative coloring book artist Peter Copeland dramatically captures the danger, tedium, and even lighter moments of a soldier s life from initial recruitment to the Grand Review in Washington at war s end.
Forty-five realistically rendered illustrations depict experiences common to both Union and Confederate soldiers new recruits saying good-bye to loved ones, trying on uniforms, learning the care and use of muskets, spending a relaxed evening in camp, making a sick call at the infirmary, posing for a photographer, waiting expectantly for mail, facing a cavalry attack, paying last respects to fallen comrades, and much more.
Informative captions complete this well-researched, skillfully illustrated book, certain to find eager fans among coloring book enthusiasts, Civil War buffs, and anyone interested in American history."
