"The men and women whose portraits make up this book were approximately contemporaries. They represent a respectable cross-section of American life in all its phases between the years 1850 and 1865. The careers of some of them intertwined and reacted one upon another-sometimes they were opposed in debate on the floor of Congress, or across the conference table-but there is only one common thread that binds them all. They sat for these portraits to the great American photographer, Mathew B. Brady. He is the real author of this book. Brady has been called 'the photographer of an era,' and properly so, for consciously, and with an eye to business, he made photographic portraits which bore his signature a mark of social arrival. The fact that Mathew Brady sought you out to take your picture meant that you were news. You could be notorious, or interesting, or famous. You need not necessarily be good and great. And so, if many of the good and great of the era in which Abraham Lincoln grew to prominence are not represented in this book, the reader must blame Mr. Brady's failure of moral vision, rather than the author's."--Introduction

"Arranged by battle site and event, each of which is introduced by a brief explanatory essay, the volume offers carefully researched archival information about the images and their photographers. In addition, lists of Library of Congress and National Archives order numbers make this volume a most valuable and unique resource."--Jacket

A decade or so after photography was first demonstrated, Mathew Brady was an eminent photographer in America, establishing a gallery/studio in New York City and being much sought-after by the celebrated and unknowns alike for his fine work. The first half of this book is a brief biography, detailing Brady's work on Civil War battlefields, the appalling shortsightedness demonstrated by the government in its non-management of that collection, and how the project left Brady bankrupt, finally dying in poverty. The second half is a Brady gallery. Many of the photographs have rarely been seen, and present a veritable Who's Who of the times. Some of the subjects include John Quincy Adams, the walking dead from Andersonville Prison, Susan B. Anthony, P.T. Barnum and his "freak show", Clara Barton, John Wilkes Booth, Brady himself, John Brown, George Custer, Jefferson Davis, Stephen Douglas, Thomas A. Edison, Andrew Jackson, Edgar Allan Poe, Theodore Roosevelt, and Mark Twain, along with early pictures of New York City, Washington D.C., the White House, the Capitol, the Washington Monument, and Niagara Falls
