    War-Date View of Bloody Lane at Antietam. Very rare albumen of Confederate dead laying-in-place in "Bloody Lane" after the Battle of Antietam. A large group of Union soldiers are lined up in the background on a plank road, overlooking the devastation. 6" x 4.5", credit of Garner & Gibson dated 1862 on the bottom. The reverse has a label indicating it is part of "Brady's Album Gallery" and is titled "View of Ditch Which had been used as a rifle-pit at the Battle of Antietam." Most views of this infamous site were published after the war by Huntington & Taylor, in stereo view format. This was published shortly after the battle. Minor wear to corners, normal toning and soil.
