Looking for a Matthew Brady photograph...
posted by starman to media & arts (5 answers total)
I'm looking for a civil war photograph of a dead soldier (possibly labeled as a sniper) taken by Matthew Brady (or his posse). There was a controversy because some things in the scene may have been posed - rifle put by his side or propped up. There might be a few of these, but I think there is one famous one in particular. I sort of remember the rifle being propped up on a wall or embankment (I could be totally wrong though).
I've found some online but none fit the rifle on wall or embankment scenario I am thinking of.
Extra points for higher resolution.
