“By drawing from available written records and painstakingly matching those passages with 350 age-old photographs, the co-authors have created a photojournalistic record of the war in Louisiana like none that has come before it.”

Portraits of Conflict

“The series, from its beginning, had a specific purpose—an emphasis upon the individual’s experience of war. The first volume made its authors aware that behind the larger stories of war are the thousands of individuals who lived through or died as a result. The series makes no pretense at providing a comprehensive history of the war in each state covered, but we do hope that it brings home the human aspect of this conflict.”
—Carl Moneyhon and Bobby Roberts, in the preface to POC: Alabama
