The Last Muster: Images of the Revolutionary War Generation

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.

The Last Muster is a much-needed contribution to the history of the American Revolution, the early Republic, and the history of photography. Through these portraits and the accompanying narrative, readers will have the opportunity to relive the Revolutionary War.
