    Interesting artical, and, from what I know, fairly accurate. Unfortunately, the exposures required at that time were still too long to capture the action of battle. The photos by Brady and othere are a wonderful history. There were many photographers, and in some cases, Brady just put his studio name on them, so it's hard to tell just who took what.
    Thanks for the artical.

    It was the back story on Brady that was truly interesting.
