Nashville, TN, November 23, 2008 --(PR.com)-- The History of the Presidio Told Through Historic Photographs.

A National Historic Landmark, the Presidio in San Francisco has been an integral part of the fabric of United States’ history. The story of this U.S. Army parallels America’s rise as a world power.

With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by author Rebecca Schall, Historic Photos of the Presidio rediscovers the fascinating past of this fortification through nearly 200 rare photographs culled from the San Francisco Public Library, Library of Congress, Golden Gate National Recreation Area Park Archives, all showcased with exceptional clarity and beauty.

From is role in the Spanish-American War to acting as headquarters for the Western Defense Command in World War II, the Presidio shines through the decades in glorious black-and-white photography, displayed in a large format.

“This book is unique for two reasons,” explains publisher Todd Bottorff, “the high quality of printing and binding and the fact that many have never seen these photos.”

Historic Photos of the Presidio is part of Turner Publishing’s Historic Photos series. These books, highlighting the history of America’s great places, pivotal events, and key figures, have been acclaimed as a staple in the collection of anyone who loves history.
