Storyboard Text

  • Photography was a job during the Civil War. A really famous photographer of that time was Mathew Brady. He took photos of the aftermath of the war and of the camp sites.
  • After seeing the photographs in this newspaper, I now see how bad this war is to our country.
  • The photos of the Civil War are not the same quality as the ones we take today. The photos that the photographers took were printed onto tin.
  • Photographers would have to go through a process called wet plate photography when they took pictures. They would only be able to take one picture before having to go through the process again.
  • Photographers couldn't take pictures of the battles going on because of too much movement and it was dangerous because of how long it took to get the camera ready. They would take photos of the aftermath of the battles and photos of the camp sites
  • Photography helped our nation. It allowed families to see what was going on when soldiers in their family were in war and it really made people open their eyes about the horrible thing happening with their own country.
