Mathew Brady: Weekend Pics

Robert E_ Lee just days after his surrender at Appomattox Court House by Matthew Brady, April 1865       General George Armstrong Custer by Matthew Brady, 1864

Two Mathew Brady pics document a Civil War winner and loser. Robert E. Lee, leader of the Confederate forces, was photographed only days after surrendering at Appomattox which was a death-blow to the Confederate forces that was only half that of the Federal military.

Also pictured is General George Armstrong Custer, a victorious Federal officer. Custer after being returned to his regular commission as a Colonel, was died with his men at Little Big Horn in the Indian wars a decade later. Tomorrow, Audra Middleton Visits A Writer’s Desk. Rita Bay
