Matthew B. Brady
Posted By: gjtoth, 07-10-2013, 11:29 AM

No Civil War photographer is more famous than Matthew Brady. However, there were MANY -- Alexander Gardner being the second most famous. They would typically arrive several days after a major engagement. Gardner was notorious for staging a scene. If there weren't enough bodies to his liking, he would go out to the field and drag them into the scene and pose them!! Brady rarely took the battlefield photos. He had his many "assistants" do it but he took the credit. His specialty was studio portraiture.

Portrayed by Wayne Ritchie of Rocky Mount, North Carolina

Thanks, Charlie. For as much that has been written into history about the "genteel and mannerly" period, there were certainly some folks that didn't practice it.
