    "The American civil war was documented through one medium, that is photography and thousands of war scenes and portraits of generals and politicians were captured by Brady and his associates who photographed the battlefields, camp life, towns, war preparations, moments before and after the battle and the people affected by the war."

    Today's photography is all digital and mostly get deleted after someone looks at it, or gets lost when their computer crashes. 100 years from now people will wonder what happened to all our cameras!
    Soldiers also wrote nice letters home that got saved, now we "tweet" or email.
