Gettysburg Then & Now: 15 Confederate dead on Rose farm

It's difficult to view, but the "Then" photo shows the ugly reality of war. Photographed by Timothy O'Sullivan, the bodies of 15 Confederates lay in a field on George Rose's farm at Gettysburg days after the soldiers were killed. O'Sullivan and Alexander Gardner shot images of at least 34 Confederate dead in this field.
