THE SOLDIER IN OUR CIVIL WAR ABRIDGEDDuring the Civil War Frank Leslie , born Henry Carter , published a weekly newspaper containing illustrations of the various battles after they took place. Unfortunately he died before his name really made money. His second wife had her name legally changed to Frank Leslie after his death and began marketing the images from his Frank Leslie's Illustrated weekly newspaper in the form of books - "The Soldier in Our Civil War." It started as an oversized two volume set and once the market was saturated by the mid 1890's she took 256 of the full page images, changed the captions, and published them as "The Soldier in Our Civil War - Abridged Edition."
