Brady Antietem

The Civil War resulted in the deaths of 600,000 – 850,000 deaths – more deaths than all other wars combined for over a century. These Civil War pictures were taken by the Brady crew. Not that it makes any difference but the  young man at top was a Confederate soldier killed at Sharpsburg, The soldiers in the bottom pic were killed at Antietam.  Burial was often in pits when deaths were in the thousands and tens of thousand.
