"This particular entry in the Documenting U.S. History series stands out by dealing with pictorial records versus the written. The photographs produced of the Civil War by Mathew Brady and his cohorts are linked to facts about the war itself. The final sections bring in the legacy of photojournalism and how the job of reporting wars through photography has changed. Preservation of historical records is also addressed. Together, this makes for a unique volume that fills a niche that often goes overlooked. Unfortunately, the photographs reproduced to illustrate the points made about the war are small and sometimes difficult to read. Still, this is a strong effort with good back matter, including resources worth pursuing for kids interested in learning more about Brady and Civil War photo records. –Karen Cruze Booklist Online 9/13/2012" - Booklist Online
