With this beautifully illustrated photographic history, the acclaimed author of Civil War Medicine: Challenges and Triumphs has taken his expertise one step further and illuminated this history in images.A Photographic History of Civil War Medicine is an extensive collection of never-before-published photographs taken during the Civil War. It provides a visual encyclopedia of medical facilities, individual surgeons, and other medically related phenomena, accompanied by a text describing the main features of Civil War medicine.Although there are many books containing photographs of the Civil War, this is the first to cover medical treatment facilities in this era. A perfect gift for Civil War buffs, historians, and medical history enthusiasts, the text of this beautiful picture book also gives a complete overview of the medical experiences of the Civil War. The book's extensive collection of individual Civil War surgeons displaying their uniforms and equipment will be of especial interest to Civil War reenactors, and its depiction of existing pre-war structures converted to hospitals will fascinate those interested in contemporary architecture. A major strength of the book is its large number of Cartes de Visites, or photographs of individual surgeons, which descendents of Civil War participants often collect.A Photographic History of Civil War Medicine covers all the main features of Civil War Medicine, including: confederate aspects of Civil War medicine; contemporary prominent medical educators; civil War hospitals and hospital stewards; field hospitals; surgery, dentistry, and embalming; and, nursing.With hundreds of previously unpublished photographs, A Photographic History of Civil War Medicine is an essential addition to any enthusiast's collection.
