The Photographic History of the Civil War. "The grandfather of pictorial histories, this mammoth work is a necessary part of any Civil War library. The work contains 3,389 images that constitute an important source on the war's appearance- “ its battlefields, common soldiers, officers, forts, diseases, camp scenes, army movements, and materiel.”
Eicher, The Civil War in Books 771.
Miller’s work "still remains the major source for photographs of the Civil War; the greatest single collection of Brady illustrations" (Allan Nevins). The Mathew Brady photographs represent the first instance of a comprehensive photo-documentation of a war. As the New York Times reported, Brady had brought "home to us the terrible reality and earnestness of war."
