"Don Troiani probably knows more about how Civil War soldiers looked and were equipped than anyone else since the veterans themselves. His paintings are unparalleled in evoking Civil War military culture-both on the battlefield and in camp." --Gary W. Gallagher, author of The Confederate War
"Don Troiani is unsurpassed at recreating, with absolute fidelity, the decisive moments of great battles." --Stephen W. Sears, author of Chancellorsville
In the world of historical painting, Don Troiani stands alone, universally acclaimed for the accuracy, drama, and sensitivity of his depictions of America's past. His Civil War paintings and limited edition prints hang in the finest collections in the country and are noted internationally as well. Don Troiani's Civil War-the first collection of his Civil War art to appear in book form-is a chronological depiction of every face of the war. His most famous and popular works-most of which are in private collections and unavailable for viewing-are all represented here; many rarer pieces, which are not even available in print form, are also included.
Don Troiani attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and New York City's Art Students League. His artwork is in numerous major collections, including American Heritage magazine, the National Park Service, the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, the Pentagon, and the Smithsonian Institute.
