After planning and designing the Treasures of the Civil War exhibit, 1717 was invited to design a limited‐edition, 180‐page, clothbound gallery book, written by Renae MacLachian, with essays by James McPherson, Bob Kerby, and Joanne Hanley. Published by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, this handsome coffee table book gives a rare glimpse into the professional and personal sides of over a dozen extraordinary political, military, and cultural leaders who had one thing in common: they achieved national fame by helping to chart a course that guided the nation through it's greatest crisis. Printed on premium coated paper, this 8.5” x 11” book features over 186 full‐color reproductions from the exhibit. The book retails in the Museum Bookstore.
