Item description for COLLECTING THE CONFEDERACY: Artifacts and Antiques from the War Between the States by Shannon Pritchard...
"Collecting the Confederacy" is the first scholarly photographic study of its kind. Finally, in one book, readers can explore the history behind more than 1,400 different artifacts, relics, weapons, and antiques, each of which played a unique role in the 1861-1865 War Between the States.
Veteran collector and historian Shannon Pritchard spent years gathering priceless (and often one-of-a-kind) items to present this stunning display of a culture and society that exists today only in books and movies.
"Collecting the Confederacy" is broken down into twenty chapters, each of which focuses on a particular type of artifact, from canteens to belt buckles, flags to uniforms, pistols to swords, and fourteen more!
Each of these chapters begins with a fascinating and insightful introduction to the subject matter, followed by photographs accompanied with detailed captions. This lavishly illustrated and meticulously crafted full-color volume will be welcome by historians and collectors around the world.
