MATTHEW BRADY'S CIVIL WAR by Youngblood & Bonds HUGE ANNOTATED PHOTO COLLECTION.

Mathew Brady's Civil War. by Wayne Youngblood and Ray Bonds. Brady and his associate photographers made literally thousands of images, for the most part now in the care of the Library of Congress.

He has written books on a range of subjects from colonial history and American Indians to stamps and stamp collecting. His specific awareness of Mathew Brady's work came from a longtime interest in early photography, the American Civil War, and US postage stamp design, for which numerous attributed and unattributed Brady photos have been used as sources.

Mathew B. Brady (c. 1822 – January 15, 1896) was one of the earliest photographers in American history, best known for his scenes of the Civil War. He studied under inventor Samuel F. B. Morse, who pioneered the daguerreotype technique in America

Mathew B. Morse, who pioneered the daguerreotype technique in America. Brady opened his own studio in New York in 1844, and photographed Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, and Abraham Lincoln, among other public figures.

The son of Irish immigrant farmers had a talent for cajoling presidents, generals and business leaders to sit before his camera. Other than his birth around 1823 in Warren County, . little is recorded about Brady's early life, a challenge for biographer Robert Wilson. Yet readers of 'Mathew Brady: Portraits of a Nation' probably benefit from this dearth of personal information

Mathew Brady (1822-96) was a well-known 19th-century American photographer who was celebrated for his portraits of politicians and his photographs of the American Civil War (1861-65).

Mathew Brady (1822-96) was a well-known 19th-century American photographer who was celebrated for his portraits of politicians and his photographs of the American Civil War (1861-65). In addition to his own work, Brady employed a team of assistants who fanned out across the country to capture the war. Together, they produced more than 10,000 images of the conflict, and brought the gruesome realities of warfare home to the American public

Photography was still in its infancy when the Civil War broke out in 1861, yet one young man, Mathew B. Brady, had the vision to create a detailed photographic record of the conflict, which nobody imagined would last for more than a few months.

Brady and his associate photographers made literally thousands of images, for the most part now in the care of the Library of Congress. This book is intended as a tribute to these talented, hardy, and ardent photographers, reproducing a selection of their works -- blemishes and all -- which are now recognized as the first in depth photo documentation of warfare.

Mathew Brady devoted himself utterly to his objective, sinking all of his personal funds and heavy loans into the effort to equip his photographers with horse drawn mobile darkrooms with which they could follow the Union forces and capture their exploits throughout the four year conflict. When the war was over, however, his customers shied away from death and destruction, preferring lighter, more agreeable fare, and Brady's business went bust owing money to scores of creditors. As with many artists before him and since, the true value of his work was not fully appreciated until after his death, broke and alone, in 1896.
