Yesterday I went to the Met to see the Photography and the Civil War exhibit. The show included photographs by notable photographers like Timothy O’Sullivan, Matthew Brady, and Alexander Gardner, along with others, many unknown. It also included some astonishing and gruesome medical pictures, as well as objects that contain photographs like lockets, campaign buttons, and portrait necklaces, attesting to photography’s role in the daily lives of the people not on the battlefield as emblems of hope, pride, memory, and loss.
