Working Title 2.1: "Chaotic Freedom" in Civil War Louisiana
Henry S. Gere and Marshall S. Stearns are transformed for the better through the Civil War. The photograph they collaborated to produce became the Civil War emblem featured in Harper's: the carte de visite of Peter, the slave with a scourged back. These biographies tell of the possibility of personal redemption and the evolution of an image. Read an excerpt or buy from Amazon, Kobo, and Weightless Books.
