About this title


Mathew Brady recognized that the new art of photography could be more than just a means of capturing people’s likenesses in portraits. Beginning with the First Battle of Bull Run in 1861 and continuing through the entire Civil War, Brady and his employees chronicled the long, bloody conflict, bringing images of war directly to the people. Brady knew the photos would create valuable historical records for later generations. More than any other photographer of his generation, Brady understood photography’s great potential―and through his influence, he taught others to understand it as well.
