Mathew Brady, Civil War Photographer

Thursday, July 14th 2016

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

In this program sponsored by the Lancaster Civil War Round Table, Wayne Ritchie will portray Matthew Brady, who sought to create a comprehensive photo-documentation of the Civil War. He organized a group of photographers to follow the troops, preserved the plate-glass negatives, and bought from private photographers in order to make the collection as complete as possible.
