Civil war photos

I just came across a stunning group of Civil War photos on another forum I frequent. They're posted here, and it downloads a PowerPoint slideshow. There's no captions, which is a shame, but many of the scenes and faces are immediately recognizable. It's astonishing that this quality of photography was in use at the time.

Enjoy.

Edit: corrected link

How about you load those pics up to a Photobucket account, instead of having everyone down-load them to their computers?

Because they're not mine - I just copied the link. We'd all be appreciative if YOU did this, sir!

Thank you. I saw many of those same pictures in a large "book" of photographs, one of three, that was in an old mansion my father bought in 1946.

I believe the title of the three books were: Collier's Photographic Encyclopedia of the Civil War, World War I and World War II (Europe only). They were nothing but notated photographs, no text. Very graphic, and they put war in perspective for a grade school kid.

One memorable picture of the Civil War, was a night time shot where a photographer set up the shot in the dark. Just as he tripped the camera, an artillery round burst in front of the camera and the photographer took a picture of himself being killed by the blast at the instant it occurred with the scene lit up by the explosion.


I have never found a copy of these books anywhere.
