By Ed Colimore
This is not just another academic history book about the Civil War. Veteran Philadelphia Inquirer staff writer Edward Colimore takes us behind the headlines of victories and defeats to re-create a "reporter's notebook" from the front lines of battle. This is the story of the newsmen who covered the world's first instant-news war, transmitting stories long distances over telegraph wires and traveling hundreds of miles on horseback and steam-driven trains. This is what it was like to be a correspondent covering the tragedy, bravery, ineptitude and daily drama of the War Between the States "live."
Adding to the uniqueness of this book, you will find 22 Inquirer Front Page reproductions, 25 maps, 64 illustrations and photos, and much more from the actual time period as the story unfolded.
