Killing Ground: The Civil War and the Changing American Landscape - Creating the North American Landscape (Hardback)John Huddleston (author)
Hardback 200 Pages
In "Killing Ground", John Huddleston embarks on a photographic odyssey through the modern-day landscape of the Civil War. He pairs historical images of the conflict from 62 battle sites across the nation - battlefield scenes, soldiers living and dead, prisoners of war, civilians, and slaves - with his own colour photographs of the same locations a century and a half later, always taken at the same time of year, often at the same hour of the day. Sometimes Huddleston's lens reveals a department store or fast-food restaurant carelessly built on hallowed ground; other images depict overgrown fields or well-manicured parks. When contrasted with their mid-19th-century counterparts, these images challenge the meaning of place in American culture and the evolving legacy of the Civil War in the national memory.
