Hundreds of photographers whose names may never be known made their living following the armies during the Civil War. They worked out of canvas tents like this one and traveled at a moment’s notice. Inside these portable studios, itinerant photographers recorded the faces of tens of thousands of soldiers—new recruits and veterans—producing a vast likeness of American society.
