Mathew Brady's Photographs of Union Generals at National Portrait Gallery

Mathew Brady's Photographs of Union Generals
at National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution
Mar 30, 2012 - May 31, 2015

Mathew Brady’s Photographs of Union Generals is a part of the NPG’S series of exhibitions marking the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Although Brady may be best known for his photographic documentation of the Civil War, his New York and Washington, DC galleries also did a brisk business throughout the conflict by producing studio portraits of the ever-changing roster of Union Army generals. Featuring modern prints made from Brady’s original glass-plate negatives in the National Portrait Gallery’s Frederick Hill Meserve Collection, this installation will include portraits of many of the North’s military leaders, from George McCellan and Ambrose Burnside to William Tecumseh Sherman and Ulysses Grant. This exhibition is curated by Ann Shumard, Curator of Photographs.
