Union dead at Gettysburg

Item Information

Title:
Union dead at Gettysburg
Description:
This photograph of the Gettysburg battlefield was selected from an album attributed to Matthew Brady. However, many were not taken by Brady himself, but by his team of unrecognized assistants or by former associates. This Timothy O'Sullivan photograph shows unshod Union dead, who probably fell behind enemy lines. It is likely their boots were looted by retreating Confederate soldiers.
