Series IV: "Incidents of the War"

Scope and Contents note

Series IV holds albumen prints by various photographers that were mounted on letterpress sheets for sale to the public. Published in series and distributed during the war, these prints are a good source for attribution as both the negative and photograph maker are credited. Many of the photographs are dated as well.

At the end of the series is a single and odd image by W. Morris Smith of Washington, DC, a photograph of a composite photograph to which Smith had added a rather crudely painted foreground (signed and dated by him on a rock at the lower left).

The series is arranged in four subseries by photographer-publisher: Brady; Gardner; Gardner Published by Philp and Solomons; and Smith. Thereunder they are filed alphabetically by image title.
