Description

Albumen print by A Gardner from a negative by D B Woodbury, from the album asembled by John Downes Rochfort. Rochfort visited all the major American Civil War sites in 1867 and some of the photographs he purchased en route have since become some of that war's best known images. Up to this time war had been portrayed as a series of heroic tableaux; these photographs revealed its realities for the first time. D B Woodbury is regarded as one of the most talented of the photographers who photographed the American Civil War. He died of tuberculosis in 1866, a year after the war ended.
