in the Civil War

By Bobby Roberts and Carl Moneyhon. Published by The University of Arkansas Press, Fayetteville, Arkansas, 1987. Hard cover, 8 3/4 x 11 1/4, with dust jacket, 242 pages, index, illustrated, brand new condition.

The American Civil War presented the first major opportunity to photograph fighting men and the places where they fought, and so to create an extensive visual record of war. However, most research into these photographic records has focused on the eastern fronts and treated the images only as illustrations for traditional narratives. In Portraits of Conflict, what Mathew Brady called "the eye of history" moves west to Arkansas to leave us one state's family album of the war years.

With over two hundred photographs and related documents the authors make indelibly real the physical and spiritual suffering of the ordinary soldier and his love for his country and its land. We meet men like seventeen year old private William Shores who died of an agonizing stomach wound received in December 1862 at the Battle of Murfreesboro, and Captain Edward Gee Miller of the 20th Wisconsin Infantry, who was charged with the burial of fifty members of his regiment after the Battle of Prairie Grove, Arkansas.

By carefully matching available written sources to photographs, the authors have created a unique opportunity for the reader to see the war on a human scale that may always elude traditional narratives.

For the photographer, the war presented the first opportunity to capture thousands of portraits of the young men who flocked eagerly to combat.

Together, the photographs, captions, and chapter introductions give us a visual and written history of Arkansas and her people in the Civil War.

The portrait on the front cover is of Mark Noble, who served the entire war in the Second Arkansas Cavalry, rising from corporal to lieutenant in the three years of his service. He was captured at the end of the war in Jefferson County on May 6, 1865, and confined to the military prison at Little Rock until he was finally released on June 10, 1865. He returned to his family and spent the rest of his life farming near Corssett in Ashley County.
