As it is a young book and the Civil War was a very bloody time in our history, I would have a hard time with where some of the photos could go. A bit too much for the young reader. Although, I will admit that I would have liked to have seen mor [...]

      The title indicates that the book will be about the Civil War, but it is really about the photographer Mathew Brady.
