Dick Eastman Reviews Maureen Taylor’s New Book “The Last Muster”
My friend Maureen Taylor, aka The Photo Detective, just published her newest book, “The Last Muster.”
“A remarkable work of documentary history, The Last Muster is a collection of rare nineteenth-century photographic images—primarily daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and carte des visite paper photographs—of the Revolutionary War generation. This extraordinary collection of images assigns faces to an un-illustrated war and tells the stories of our nation’s founding fathers and mothers, updating and supplementing research last collected and published over a century ago. “
Dick Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter wrote a review of the book that itself is a fascinating read. Even if you’re not a history buff or a photography buff, Dick’s review provides insight and commentary on an area of our history that has little photographic documentation.
