Blood Shed in This War
Blood Shed in This War: Civil War Illustrations by Captain Adolph Metzner, 32nd Indiana
by Michael A. Peake
Capt. Adolph G. Metzner’s stunning visual diary of sketches, drawings and watercolors depict his world during three years of service with the First German, 32nd Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry campaigning in the Western Theater during the Civil War. Metzner chronicled the day-to-day life of a soldier’s world, at first with humor and later with a stark reality of life and death on the battlefield.
