About the Author

Ben H. Severance is an associate professor of history at Auburn University Montgomery and a former officer in the United States Army. He is the author of Tennessee's Radical Army: The State Guard and Its Role in Reconstruction, 1867-1869.


"Readers are fortunate to have this book during the Civil War sesquicentennial, and fortunate that Severance was called to write it. Once again, the man and the hour have met. Portraits of Conflict: A Photographic History of Alabama in the Civil War is a solid contribution to the scholarly literature on the war."--The Journal of Southern History, May 2014

"A first rate scholarly work that Civil War historians will find invaluable for understanding the inner workings of an army both in combat and in camp. As a rare example of a general officer's diary that covers the entire span of the conflict, this book is an important contribution to the field." --Kim Allen Scott in Arkansas Historical Quarterly, winter 2012

"After 25 years, the project is still going strong, unwavering in its commitment to quality .... Students of Civil War photography will appreciate this book, as well those with a more specialized interest in Alabama's people and their war." --Civil War Books and Authors

"Reynolds began his diary on May 25, 1861, the day his company left home. Though some entries are brief, there is one for almost every day through June 15, 1865. His comments on battles are extensive, his opinions of Confederate generals and their interactions insightful, and his travels through nine states informative. Reynolds' record is a valuable addition to confederate literature dealing with both the Trans-Mississippi and Western theaters, and Robert Bender has significantly enhanced it with 98 pages of detailed editorial notes." --Larry Hewitt in Blue & Gray Magazine, 2012

"Should appeal to all Civil War buffs, as well as to all those who are interested in Alabama history." --Roger D. Cunningham, The Journal of America's Military Past, Fall 2013

Praise for the Portraits of Conflict Series: "The Portraits of Conflict books make for terrific browsing... as the reader turns the pages, and reads one profile to the next, he has no idea what fate has in store for the next soldier, with the randomness of that fate on full display." --H-Net "A major contribution and welcome addition to Civil War history." --The Journal of Southern History "A sensibly priced, beautifully produced photographic history." --Civil War History "A splendid addition to the graphic literature of the sectional conflict." --Choice "Destined to become a collector's item... first class." --The Civil War News "Fine, attractive photographic history." --Kansas History
