This afternoon we posted the first batch of Mathew Brady Civil War photographs on our Flickr photostream. These are at a higher resolution (300 dpi) than they are elsewhere online. We are planning to post all 6,066.
If looking at this selection sparks your curiosity, browse or search among all 6,000 now in the Archival Research Catalog: Mathew Brady Photographs of Civil War-Era Personalities and Scenes. Click where it says, “Includes 6,066 items described in ARC” or “Search within this Series.”
This first set is just grouped as a selection. We have a few ideas for how we will begin organizing them into sets as we upload more, but would love to hear your suggestions for ways you might like to browse these photos (for example, by state, Confederate/Union, by battle, officers).
