Very nice! Wish I could be there to see if in person.

Interesting photos. I have read that Fenton did not like the first version of Valley of the Shadow of Death, and had his workers move more cannonballs into the field of view. Much like Matthew Brady, Fenton was not above arranging photos for a little more dramatic effect. Still, his was important work.
