For no other war in modern times, European or American, has the news reporting been analyzed as exhaustively.
Andrews presents the drama of the Civil War as seen through the eyes of reporters’ own diaries, dispatches, and printed news stories.
As fascinating a cast of characters as can be found in American history.
J. Cutler Andrews was a historian, and author of The South Reports the Civil War, a companion to this book, and The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “The First Newspaper West of the Alleghenies.”
