PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

During the Vietnam War, uncensored television broadcasts beamed pictures of American dead to horrified home audiences. During the American Civil War, the technology that brought the dead into parlors was photography, specifically that used with stereopticons. Students will explore what photography was used for during the war and whether it was used properly. Was it propaganda to pose live soldiers as dead bodies? Was a photographer justified in moving a dead Confederate infantryman to pose him as a sharpshooter?
