I want to recomend a book. Civil War Battle Fields Then and Now I cant remember who wrote it right now. It shows pictures from then and now. There are a few paragraphs on each page. Beautiful pictures though

That sounds like a good recommendation. I've seen the Then and Now books concerning the First World War and they are very good. I'll keep my eye out for the Civil War book.Thanks.

Bama I have those books.  I think there are three on Gettysburg and one on Antietam.   The book Dixie is talking about is a coffee table book.  I have it in the other room where all the big books on the Civil War sit on the shelf.   Found it on the bargin shelf at Barnes and Noble. 

Speaking of the bargaian shelves, I just got a big bargain book The Civil War .  Has a few mistakes in labeling .  The statue of the minute man at Lexington is labeled as a monument to Mass Civil War Soldiers.  There is also a cannon battery labeled Vicksburg , Louisana .  That aside the pictures and prints of paintings are wonderful.  I was enjoying just looking at some prints of 19th century paintings and early 20th that I had not seen before.   Book is by Jonathan Sutherland and Diane Canwell .

I have that book about the Gettysburg Battle Field. It is so interesting to see what it did look like in the mid-1860s as compared to now. Actually I wish tthe book also showed how the area looked in the 1940s and 1950s when I knew the area and how it looked the last time I visited it in the late 1990s.

Given their recent efforts to restore it to its 1860's appearance, it would indeed be an interesting book to read and then compare with a visit. I'll have to look it up on my next book hunt.
