The New York Times has produced this video that goes over some of the important images that came out of the American Civil War. This video reminds me of the utterly amazing exhibit at the MET in NYC about the Civil War.

If you are in NYC, I highly recommend visiting this exhibit because it is just chock full of interesting bits. If you can’t make it to NYC, purchase the accompanying book here which includes a lot of the photos seen in the video above plus a whole lot more.
