"From the famous and authentic Brady war photograph collection there has been selected portraits of the great commanders and leaders of both the Union and Confederate armies and navies, and many scenes of great historical interest, taken fifty years ago and making a marvelous fac-simile reproduction of the battlegrounds, fortifications, the dead and wounded, hospitals, and incidents of the greatest conflict this Country has ever known and fittingly commemorating the fiftieth aniversary of the great national struggle. The entire work, issued in sixteen sections, with sixteen separate color plates of great commanders in action and famous battle swcenes from the painting of H.A. Ogden and other famous artists of military subjects."--title page
