Atlanta: A Portrait of the Civil War
by Michael Rose
1999, Arcadia Publishing
From the back cover:
Taken from the Atlanta History Center's visual arts collection, the images in this volume tell the story of the city as it was up to and during the Civil War. View the ruins of the Ponder House, the destruction of the rail lines, and the demolition of General Hood's ordnance train. Informative captions complement this engaging collection of images, and include excerpts from diaries, letters, and memoirs regarding life in Atlanta during the war. Many of the photographs were taken by George N. Bernard and his staff during the Federal occupation of Atlanta in the fall of 1864, and again in 1866 as he planned a publication of war views. Atlanta: A Portrait of the Civil War offers a comprehensive view of the city during a war that continues to fascinate both professional and amateur historians alike.
Author Michael Rose of the Atlanta History Center has compiled an unprecedented journey into the history of the Civil War that emphasizes the human experience in a time of terror and destruction. This impressive collection takes readers to the very heart of the most significant event in Southern and American history.
