South Carolina: Civil War photos capture soldiers, dead and alive
The above image, called an ambrotype, is part of a museum exhibition that just opened in Charleston, S.C., called "Photography and the American Civil War." The process, which uses a glass plate, captured Confederate Army Capt. Charles Hawkins, left, and his brother, John, around 1861 or '62.
