The Black Civil War Soldier: A Visual History of Conflict and Citizenship with Deborah Willis

“Professor Deborah Willis discusses The Black Civil War Soldier and offers a kaleidoscopic, yet intimate portrait of the African American experience, from the beginning of the Civil War to 1900. Through her multimedia analysis, Willis acutely pinpoints the importance of African American communities in the development and prosecution of the war. The book shows how photography helped construct a national vision of blackness, war, and bondage, while unearthing the hidden histories of these black Civil War soldiers.”
