"By a happy accident of history, Winslow Homer's young manhood coincided with the Civil War. As a result, we have a unique eyewitness account of the most dramatic chapter in our history as a nation recorded with the genius and sensitivity of one of our most popular artists."

"Echo of a Distant Drum is the first comprehensive volume of Homer's Civil War art to be published. It is, in effect, a pictorial history of the war as Homer saw it, and included virtually his entire artistic production from 1861 to 1865 in all mediums-oils, drawings, watercolors, wood engravings, and lithographs, superbly reproduced and accompanied by battle maps, contemporary photographs, quotations from Walt Whitman and other Civil War observers, and the author's own illuminating commentaries. A comprehensive bibliography is also included."
