Early photography at Gettysburg
This book is the best and most complete study of Gettysburg photography. It is the long-awaited companion to Gettysburg: A Journey in Time. In the 20 years since Journey, Frassanito has uncovered many more never-before published photos of people and places significant to Gettysburg's early history as well as new information on commonly known photos, presented in a clear format. 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 known 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. - Publisher.
