Presented in 12 thematic sections, this visual history of America's epochal conflict features more than 500 items drawn from the unparalleled collections of the Library of Congress, including Mathew Brady's iconic photographs; period drawings, lithographs, and woodcuts; important manuscripts like the Gettysburg Address; political and theatrical posters; and ephemera like the contents of Lincoln's pockets the night he was assassinated.
