Three Confederate Prisoners

In mid-July 1863, Mathew Brady and his crew set up a stereoscopic, wet-plate camera here and recorded what is arguably the most iconic of all Civil War photographs. The photo had been widely reproduced for more than a century when historian William A. Frassanito divined its location, looking southeastward toward Cemetery Hill. Despite proclamations to the contrary over the years, nothing is known about the identities of the men in the photo.
