About the book:

A remarkable addition to the canon of Civil War literature, Civil War in Depth, Volume II, features 170 vivid images, many never previously published. Especially significant is the portfolio of rare, color images. A companion to the perennial Civil War in Depth, this all-new book includes a redesigned, easy-to-use stereoscopic viewer, which unveils each image in glorious 3-Das it was originally taken and meant to be seen. Every Civil War aficionado will enthuse over these dramatic photographs, selected from the unparalleled private archives of Robin Stanford. They bring this epic struggle to life in a way no two-dimensional photograph ever could. At the heart of this distinguished volume are 24 vivid, full color works, wartime images that were exquisitely hand-tinted with watercolor before being sold. An entire chapter is devoted to discoveries, from the rarest Gettysburg stereograph to the lost cyclorama painting of the Second Bull Run. Additional chapters include portraits of black soldiers' experiences, of camp life, and the haunting starkness of the battlefield. Never has the war between the states been revealed with such extraordinary clarity and resonance.
