The Civil War Through the Camera
by Henry W. Elson
Publisher: Patriot Publishing Co. 1912
Number of pages: 558
The text does not aim at a statistical record, but is an impartial narrative supplementing the pictures. Nothing gives so clear a conception of a person or an event as a picture. The more intelligent people of the country, North and South, desire the truth put on record, and all bitter feeling eliminated. This work, with its text and pictures, it is believed, will add greatly to that end.

Lawrence Beesley boarded the Titanic to go for a holiday in the States. His account of the epic disaster is widely regarded as one of the fairest and most comprehensive of its kind. Full of nautical detail and written with a hair-raising clarity.
