by William A. Frassanito

Early Photography at Gettysburg examines the when, why, how and by whom one of the greatest battlefields in the world was documented when the field still looked essentially as it did at the time of the battle. Frassanito focuses on the period between 1859 and 1869, a period that begins with the earliest outdoor photograph know to have been recorded in the town, through the photographic series which comprised the last substantial postwar coverage of the field itself before the memorial craze adorned the area with monuments and avenues. With over 300 illustrations, including 150 historical scenes and portraits not reproduced in the author's classic "Gettysburg: A Journey in Time", this book is a must for all Gettysburg and Civil War historians.
