Mort Kunstler’s latest print beautifully captures a crucial moment in the life of the Army of Northern Virginia. The scene takes place in Orange County, Virginia following the army’s defeat at Gettysburg. Kunstler vividly depicts the men in the army marching down main street, while Lee, Longstreet, and A.P. Hill discuss something. As you can see, this is the exact moment in the war when both Lee and Hill simultaneously gestured with their right arms. Longstreet, as usual, looks befuddled. It’s hard to believe that this is the first print to depict this moment in the war. If you are in the area you can meet Kunstler in person on Saturday at the Orange County Courthouse.

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
David Blight, Author of Race and Reunion
