Thinker Media

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Documenting events through photography became a popular phenomenon during the Civil War. The Civil War Sesquicentennial Series showcases these historical images and provides detailed commentary for each photograph. Each ebook in the series focuses on an aspect of the war, such as its administration, new technologies, and the people and occupations of the day. 

The artillery pictures in this ebook provide insight into the weaponry that was patented and utilized in the mid-1800s. These images, captured by the nation’s first war photographers, document the brutality behind a war fought by brothers of a divided nation. The West Point and Mystic Island foundries produced many ingenious new weapons manufactured from 1861 to 1865, including the Parrott Gun, Dahlgren's Cannon, and the infamous Swamp Angel. Photographs in this collection also show weapons used in battlefields and on ships, gunboats, railroad cars and limbers. Rare artillery imported from British foundries like the Blakely and Whitworth cannons are also included. The story of Civil War artillery unfolds in this unique collection.
