Soldiers, Sailors, Slaves, and Ships: The Civil War Photographs of Henry P. Moore
In 1862 and 1863, Henry P. Moore made at least two trips to the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina to photograph the Third New Hampshire Volunteer Regiment, which had left Concord in 1861 to join the Union offensive. This book includes 50 of Moore's striking and nationally significant Civil War images from the New Hampshire Historical Society's collection. Of the book, filmmaker Ken Burns said, "After a while, we begin to understand in our bones that the most important event in our history is best revealed through the lives, actions, and postures of the ordinary men and women who endured the war with dignity and much grace. It is all here in this visually sumptuous, thoughtful book."
