Michael A. Peake brought a remarkable talent to the attention of the world with Blood Shed in This War.

Captain Adolph G. Metzner’s stunning visual diary of sketches, drawings, and Watercolors depicts his world during three years service with the First German, 32nd Indiana Infantry Regiment campaigning in the Western Theater during the Civil War.

Metzner depicted the day-to-day lives of the German-American soldiers with humor, and with the stark reality of life and death on the battlefield.

Near fine condition.

Peake, Michael A. Blood Shed in This War: Civil War Illustrations of Captain Adolph Metzner, 32nd Indiana. Indianapolis: Indiana Historical Society Press, 2010. 142p., illustrated.
