Summary
If the "War Between the States" was the test of the young republic's commitment to its founding precepts, it was also a watershed in photographic history, as the camera recorded the epic, heartbreaking narrative from beginning to end-- providing those on the home front, for the first time, with immediate visual access to the horrors of the battlefield
