This gallery contains photographs of historical battle sites that also captured the gruesomeness of the war, but the gallery is not just limited to battle field it also includes photos of the historical sites of the war and paintings of important events and people.

This is picture of Fort Sumter in Charleston, South Carolina. Battle of Fort Sumter was the beginning of the American Civil War. This picture shows the aftermath of the bombardment of the fort in 1861. The perspective of the picture really allows you to see the damage that was done to the fort as you can see it looks like a pile of dirt.
Field Where General Reynolds Fell, Gettysburg depicts 5 dead mean laying in a field in Gettysburg. The battle of Gettysburg was one of the biggest battles in the civil war because of its location and the casualties amongst other things. The battle of Gettysburg also became the platform for President Lincoln's speech. This picture captures the essence of lifelessness and the regularity of the men lying in the field.
Home of a Rebel Sharpshooter, Gettysburg is from Alexander Garden's Photograph Sketchbook of the War collection of 100 photograph of the United States Civil War. It captures the tragic aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg, focusing on one dead solider lying inside what was called a “sharpshooter’s den.” The photographer was able to evoke emotion by placing the body right in the focal point of the picture.
This pictures shows President Lincoln meeting with the confederates at the battle field of Antietam, which was another important battle in the Civil War. This battle was one of the bloodiest ones and it also allowed President Lincoln to pas the Emancipation Proclamation. This picture uses focal point to make Lincoln the center of attention as most of the men in the picture are indeed looking the President.
Eastman Johnson drew his inspiration for this Civil War picture from an incident that reportedly occurred during the Battle of Antietam in which an injured drummer boy asked a comrade to carry him so that he could continue drumming his unit forward. The fact that he wanted to continue drumming just shows bravery and dedication. The colors in the painting really sets the mode and allows you to feel how dark of a day it was.
First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation depicts President Lincoln in a room with his advisors, most of who looks disinterested, maybe to reference their initial rejection of the proclamation. The proclamation was very important for many reasons, for one, it change the focus of the Civil War from preserving the union to ending slavery. The painter did a good job of using lights and darks to bring focus to President Lincoln.
5c Emancipation Proclamation stamp depicts a chain that appears to be broken which symbolizes the freedom of the slaves in parts of the South. The Emancipation Proclamation issued by President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed "that all persons held as slaves" within the rebellious states "are, and henceforward shall be free."
This was taken after the Emancipation Proclamation was made and these were among the first salves to be free. If you look closely you can see young kids and old people. You can also see people holding things on top their heads and you don't really get the sense of freedom from the picture but rather just a moment of nothingness.
The Pinckney Mansion was the home of the sharpshooters during the war. The photographer was able to capture the destruction of the place and it almost feels like you are there. There is almost nothing left of the mansion and that indeed testifies to the degree of the war taking place at the time.
While there is no picture of the actual murder of President Lincoln there is a picture of the man who committed the crime. The main this picture is John Wilkes Booth, the first person to assassinate a president. This pictures captures the seriousness of his character.
