No great photographer has ever impressed his personality on the nation in which he lived more strongly than Mathew B. Brady. Perhaps this is partly because no other photographer has more completely absorbed the spirit of his times, so that mid-nineteenth century America and the American Civil War are linked with his name. Mathew B. Brady, who used his camera to record his country's history as Bancroft did his pen, produced the greatest pictorial essay of our times.
