William A. Frassanito. Gettysburg: Thomas Publications. Softcover, 7 x 10, 250 pages.

A Civil War classic! In this, his first book, Frassanito pioneers the study of Civil War photography and the use of photos as historical documents. He shows us that each photo is loaded with information the same as any written record. Filled with scenes of the Gettysburg battlefield taken immediately after the battle, each photo is analyzed and accompanied by a modern view. Definitely a book to carry with you on the battlefield for your own exploration!

Fascinating reading... a remarkable book ...will delight Civil War buffs, those interested in the history of photography, and all who have ever walked over an historic battlefield. It should also provide a thoughtful lesson for historians who tend to underestimate what can be learned from a close study of photographs, for Frassanito has given us more than a book of pictures; he has produced a valuable work of scholarship.... He is perhaps uniquely qualified to do this: not only does he have a vast knowledge of early photography and of this particular battle, but he also has an intimate knowledge of the terrain and possesses a detective skill that would be a credit to Lieutenant Columbo. -- The Washington Post

The 'journey' is sobering and memorable. -- Publishers Weekly

The first definitive photo-historical record of that great battle. -- New York Post
