Photography and the American Civil War

Photography and the American Civil War

by The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Book

As the Civil War ravaged the United States, photographers were present to document and memorialize the fierce conflict. For the first time ever, the camera recorded a long and ferocious war from beginning to end, not only documenting a brutal test of the young American Republic but also marking a watershed in the history of photography.

 

Photography and the American Civil War provides a collection of over 200 photographs and related works curated by photography historian Jeff L. Rosenheim. In telling the fascinating stories of wartime photographers, Photography and the American Civil War shows how studio portraits and battlefield scenes galvanized public opinion, how enterprising artists created a vast and enduring visual archive, and exposes the critical importance of the camera during this turbulent period of American history.
