Many of these images are familiar to even the most casual Civil War buff; others are quite unfamiliar - the purpose of this work is to 1) reunite the images with their catalog descriptions; 2) make available a body of reference pertaining to Civil War photography in the hopes of correcting long-time miscaptions and misrepresentations.

Because above all, accuracy is my goal, I have taken nothing on assumption - many of the blanks in the catalog are photos that I think I know which number they might correspond to - but unless I have seen a photograph with a number on it, I will not include it here. If you have any information that would be of use in this compilation, I would be very grateful to hear from you.

Further, this catalog is in no way to be construed as commercial in any way - I do not personally possess most of the images you will see here, so please do not contact me regarding sales of the images. This site is intended for research purposes (ie: the betterment of historical knowledge) not the betterment of my pocketbook.

This catalog is very much a work in progress, so please check back often.
