The thing that strikes me personally about Matthew Brady's Federal Dead on the Field of Battle is that those are actual dead bodies of real people, not actors in a war movie. The man in the foreground. He had a family and friends, people that mourned his loss and were probably very moved--or horrified--by this photograph.
