Brady’s Civil War Journal chronicles the events of the war by showcasing a selection of Brady’s moving, one-of-a-kind images and describing each in terms of its significance.
Mathew Brady and his team of assistants risked their lives to capture up-close images of the fury of the American Civil War and its aftermath. Brady’s team not only captured thousands of portraits of the combatants, the generals, the fighting men, the sick, the dead, and the dying, but also documented the infrastructure of the war machine itself, recording images of artillery pieces, the early railroads, and extraordinary engineering feats.
