A rare copy of a collector's item, in which East brings together more than 75 photographs made in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, during the Civil War period. The collection includes many of the remarkable war-time views taken by Baton Rouge photographer Andrew Lytle and a number of rare cartes de visite; many of the photographs had never before been published. Subject matter includes street scenes, views of public buildings, rare photographs of former slaves at the dawn of their freedom, Union camps, gunboats, and other navy vessels. In his text, the author tells something of the photographers themselves and how the photos were taken and places the pictures in the context of the events that were happening, drawing on letters, diaries, and other written records of the period.
