The Battle of Antietam is special in the history of photojournalism because it was the first battle where photographers arrived and captured images on the battlefield before the dead were all buried. Alexander Gardner and James F. Gibson took a series of Antietam photos and William Frassanito has pinpointed their location on the battlefield. He paired each historical photo with a modern-day view and the book also includes a narrative of the battle.
